A juicy, rustic red that is a blend of Italian grapes in a liter bottle (extra glass of wine). Excellent with a slight chill. 

Primarily 50% Alicante Nero, 30% Sangiovese from Tuscany 


This wine is a blend of varieties originating from the Mediterranean Basin — 50% Alicante Nero, 30% Sangiovese, 10% Carignano, 9% Mourvedre, 1% Alicante Bouschet—sourced from vineyards at 180-250 meters above sea level, the lower and more coastal-influenced vineyards of Ampeleia. The fruit was harvested from the 10th to the 25th of September at yields of 60hl/ha. The varieties were harvested and vinified separately. A small part of the harvest undergoes carbonic maceration (10%), the rest is either done whole berry or crushed. Macerations lasted 5-7 days. Aged 6 months in cement tanks. 165,000 1L bottles produced.

Just for Fun

Carbonic maceration is a winemaking technique where whole grape clusters are placed in a sealed container filled with carbon dioxide, which triggers a fermentation process inside the berries. This process results in wines that are fruity, low in tannins, and have a bright color.

Ampeleia is an Italian winery located in the heart of the Maremma region in Tuscany. The winery is known for its focus on sustainable and biodynamic farming practices and for producing high-quality wines that express the unique terroir of the region.
