Bright red with violet reflections. This wine has a strong aromatic integrity with hints of cherry and sour black cherry mixed with spice and vanilla. Good structure, long, balsamic finish, mature tannins and persisting aftertaste.
Grapes are handpicked in selected vineyards. The best grapes are chosen and are then gently crushed and destemmed. Pre-fermentative maceration is carried out at a temperature of about 4-5° for 5 days. Then the grapes undergo fermentation at a temperature of 22-24°C. Refining: 60% stainless steel tanks and 40% in used barriques for 10 months. Bottle aged for another 3 months.
Vigneti del Vulture's vineyards are trained low and planted on volcanic soils on the slopes of Mount Vulture, at an altitude of up to 800 metres above sea level. According to consultant winemaker Alberto Antonini, the area is isolated and just like stepping back in time.
The 2018 vintage saw cooler weather than usual, which allowed the grapes to ripen gradually and retain refreshing acidity. As a result, wines from 2018 are more elegant than bolder vintages.
