Description

It opens in the nose with a fresh vegetal vein, reminiscent of mint, eucalyptus and rose petals, which gradually leaves room for the fruity fullness of cherries, raspberries and plums. Long-lasting aromatic notes reveal an impressive density and depth that a quality wine in this class must have. On the palate, dark fruity accents are once again present, complemented by ripe dates and some marzipan. Its round and very balanced character makes it a wonderful wine experience from Campania.

Italy – Where wine is a way of life

The Italian wine regions are extremely diverse, and this is made clear in their wines. Established varieties such as Merlot, Syrah, and Sauvignon can be found on just 15 percent of the total vine growing area. The remaining 85 percent is reserved for autochthonous, indigenous varieties. More than 2,000 different grape varieties are grown under diverse conditions and pressed with various techniques into wines that reach the top tier of the international wine market.

Piedirosso

nomen est omen

It is believed that the Greeks brought this rare, ancient red grape variety to the southern Italian region of Campania during antiquity. The name Piedirosso means “redfoot,” and refers to the vine’s red wood. The Roman scholar Pliny the Elder (23-79 CE) even mentions the variety in his encyclopedic work on natural history. He died during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, where this historical variety now grows. The volcanic, ash-containing soil is extremely rich in minerals, and the grapes produce complex, multi-faceted wines.
