Member Review by Philip James:

Opens with a meaty nose, medium tannns and firm acids. Flavors of figs, black currents, and a tannic finish with hints of leather.

The Farm covers 30 hectares of land, of which five are given over to mixed crops, five to olive groves and twenty to vineyards, and lies in the municipality of Bevagna on the hillsides of Arquata and Colcimino, an area renowned since antiquity for the high quality of its oil and wine. Around the year 50 Anno Domini, in fact, Pliny the Elder wrote the following about the Itriola grape, typical of Bevagna, the ancient Mevania of the Umbrians, the Etruscans and the Romans: "Itriola Umbriae Mevanatique Agro Peculiaris Est". - 1960 saw the start of the renovation works to the old convent of the Philippine friars, which stands on ruins dating back to the Roman age and to the late Renaissance, as well as the re-planting of the old vineyards and the planting of new ones. Today the winery is equipped with all the latest technological innovations and has selected vineyards of Grechetto and Sagrantino (native species of vine), Barbera, Cabernet, Chardonnay, Merlot, Sangiovese and others. It produces wine, grappa and extra-virgin olive oil, about 30% of which is exported to Europe, the U.S.A., Canada and Japan. Read less

Discovered this one at Lupa. Many of the characteristics we love, deep, rich stone fruit, cherry. A little lighter and shorter on the pallet than our favorites.

Heaven in a glass! Smoke, leather, and oak giving way gradually to rich Umbrian flavors - fig and truffle, wild boar and sundried tomato. Quite tannic but profound and resonant. This is a wine that you don't forget, and it's certainly worth the price for an occasion.
