Info about the wine

The wine comes from a single parcel called "Vigna dell'Asina" (Donkey Vineyard).
The name is indicated by a stream that borders the vineyard.
East-facing with red clay soil and limestone (Galestro and Palombino rocks), at an altitude of 500m.18 year old vines planted in Guyot produce sufficient moisture just in the morning hours.

Info about the expansion

To support the purity of the Cabernet Franc grape, 20% is made from whole grapes and vinified for 9 months in cement tanks.

Color

Deep, muted violet-red with purple brightening towards the rim.

Nose

Its cool, aristocratic scent of sloe, blackcurrant, blackberry and elderberry pairs with green pepper, boxwood, nettle, laurel, chimney, wood smoke included. Eucalyptus and star anise float above - what a charming red fabric.

Palate

On the tongue, we feel saltiness and lots of juicy fruit, finest tannin, exceedingly fine pepper notes. I'm sorry, but I'm not objective about good Cabernet Franc, I just love this grape variety too much to remain neutral. I could drink it all the time, especially when vinified like Ampeleia's Cabernet Franc, whether solo or paired with food. You simply can't go wrong with a wine like this, except for not having enough stock in the cellar.
