Farnese Red Blend Edizione Cinque Autoctoni 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Valentino Sciotti describes this wine as 'a true taste of southern Italy'. Comprising Montepulciano and Sangiovese from the Abruzzi and Primitivo, Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera from southern Puglia, the varieties are aged separately before blending to create a rich, powerful yet eminently drinkable wine. Grapes for the Cinque Autoctoni are grown in the communes of Colonnella, Ortona, Sava and San Marzano. The Montepulciano and Sangiovese grapes are from the Abruzzi while the rest are grown in Southern Puglia. For this reason, the wine is a Vino da Tavola. The wine itself expresses tremendous depth of colour and a powerful, intense nose with perfumes of dark plums, blackberries and a touch of vanilla, cinnamon and mixed spice from the new oak. On the palate, it‘s warm and robust, with chocolate mocha flavours tightly knit with the dark, plummy fruit. Tannins are firm but approachable nevertheless, supporting the ripe fruit right to the finish.

a bit bitter after taste, need probably 20-30 minutes of decanting
