La Sibilla Campi Flegrei Piedirosso 2020

Excl. tax

'...soft tannins and berryish flavors are kicked up with a spicy note of cinnamon and dried cherry...distinctive savor and bright acidity' as David Lynch says of Piedirosso in his excellent Vino Italiano.

Limited inventory

Just north of Naples, right on the coast of Campania, there is a very small grape-growing area called the Campi Flegrei. The soil is so sandy here that the vines can be planted directly in it, without being grafted to other rootstock. Perhaps it is this very unusual fact that makes these wines so distinctive, along with the great care given to the vines and the wine by Luigi di Meo and his family. Since European viticulture was wiped out by the phylloxera insect in the last half of the nineteenth century, there is great nostalgia for the Golden Age of wine made from ungrafted vines. Here is a very rare opportunity for you to taste for yourself. Fully developed flavors of this indigenous varietal while maintaining low alcohol level fo 12 per cent and excellent fresh acidity. Aged in stainless steel to allow the striking flavors to shine through with out being muddied by oak.
