Intense ruby red with violet and purple nuances
Red fruit, mulberry and sour cherry preserve aromas with notes of vanilla, cocoa, leather, licorice and black pepper.
Rich and full-bodied on the palate, with long lingering taste and ripe, balanced tannins
Grapes are harvested from hillside vineyards in the province of Chieti, in central Italy’s coastal Abruzzo region.
|Wine maker notes
|Hand-picked grapes from old vines (at least 30 years) are vinified employing traditional
methods, including a long maceration of the skins at controlled temperature. The wine is
refined in stainless steel tanks followed by a stay in large casks and a short period in small barrels before bottling and release.
|Perfect accompaniment for meats such as roasted lamb, pappardelle with boar, and beef
tenderloin. Also delicious with aged cheeses such as 5-8 year old Pecorino from Abruzzo.
