Info about the wine

Alicante Nero, Grenache Cannonao are different synonyms of a grape variety. In Ampeleia, it is an expression of delicacy like a breeze and gentleness.

Grown at 250m above sea level, harvested in the first week of September with a yield of 50hl/ha.

Info about the expansion

Fermented for 6 months in cement tanks with a whole cluster of 30%.

Color

Bright garnet red, slightly cloudy with delicate lightening towards the rim.

Nose

The aromas of bright cherries, red currants, rosehip and mulberry penetrate the nose, finely interwoven with the herbs of Tuscany and clear floral notes of violets, elder and lavender. A light, wonderfully fragrant representative, delighted one waits for the first sip.

Palate

Filigree and incredibly animating to drink, the Alicante of Ampeleia flows over the tongue. Much fruit pairs with silky tannin structure and stimulating acidity, which appears beautifully ripe. Well chilled, it turns out to be a real tasty treat with substance. Wonderful red wine for the terrace in combination with Italian cuisine.
