Pithecusa Rosso Epomeo IGT (Aglianico Piedirosso Montepulciano) Epomeo IGT 2013

26.00 30.00

Lucia Monti makes her Pithecusa Rosso  with 50% Aglianico 40% Piedirosso and 10% Montepulciano grapes (in some vintages the mix can varies a little due to production differences) coming from the vineyards Le Coste (clay), Tenuta Piromallo and Panza in Forio (tufa and sand).  Harvest is in October.
Spontaneous fermentation is done in stainless steel.  Malolactic is carried instead in chestnut wood casks (following her granpa tradition) where ageing also happens for a minimum of a year before bottling.   The result is ruby red with garnet hues.   The nose is fine, intense of violet cherries and spices.   The taste is warm and dry with black fruits cherries and tobacco and harmoniously tannic.  Versatile and complex this wine pairs very well with main courses particularly if with red meat or medium to sharp cheeses.
