The Negro Amaro and Montepulciano were picked on the 28th March with the Aglianico on the 4th April 2019. All the fruit was destemmed and lightly crushed (rollers open) to their fermenters. The Negro Amaro and Montepulciano were co-fermented in concrete open fermenters with header boards and seeded with Melody yeast. Temperatures were allowed to reach 28C with header boards allowing gentle extraction. After 11 days on skins the fruit was basket pressed and transferred into older French oak. The Aglianico was crushed to a smaller open fermenter and indigenous yeast was allowed to start fermentation, one parcel was fermented on skins for 12 days. The two parcels were matured separately in older French oak until blending in January 2020, then the wine was put back into oak until pump out early August 2020. Once pumped out the wine was left in tank to settle naturally before bottling. No fining used.

About the wine

Tasting notes

Vibrant colour, aromas of red berry, florals, herbs, orange peel and sweet spice resembling red wine-based vermouth. A crunchy lively palate crisp palate showing elements of each variety. The Negro Amaro adding floral, citrus and the spice element, Montepulciano adding the red berry fruit, with Aglianico giving rose and dried herb element. All three varietals have delivered fine tannin and natural acid.
