Aromas of pear and grape skin with hints of green apple. Full body, dense and phenolic with lots of lively acidity and a bright finish. A fresh and textured style. Pale grey with hints of mercury on the rim. Explosion of minerality with touches of fruit like mango with touches of jasmin, orange blossom and pear and toasted bread.

Merlot, Corvina, Croatina. The Merlot and Corvina grapes, selected and hand harvested with great
care, are then left to dry for 1 month into trays in the Fruttaio. Here, thanks
to the dry and well ventilated environment where the humidity level is carefully
controlled, the grapes loses around 15% of their water content and gain high sugars concentration. Deep ruby-red in color. The nose has intense aromas of red berries with hintsof spices. The palate is balanced with velvety tannins, and it has a soft and round finish.

Very deep black and red fruits with hints of blackberries, plums, and cured olives; good acidity, ample smooth tannins and a long finish reminiscent of black cherries, tea, spices, figs, and plums. Fantastic aromas of dark fruits and walnut, sweet tobacco, dark tea and balsamic. Some oysters, too. Full body, powerful and rich. So much going on here. A great wine from Campania. 95 Pts James Suckling
