Poggio delle Baccanti Rosso Frizzante Penisola Sorrentina Gragnano DOC 2017

Estate: I was unable to find much information, and what I did find was predominately in Italian, so please excuse any translation errors. Raffaele La Mura comes from a long line of winemakers, he grew up watching both his father, uncle and grandfather making wine at the family estate, La Mura. Located in in the Penisola Sorrentina, near Naples, only indigenous grapes native to Campania are grown. Dedicated to preserving the land and the native grapes, Raffaele has revitalized his family estate, calling it Poggio delle Baccanti.

Winemaking: Vineyards are farmed organically and sustainably, with low intervention in both the vineyard and cellar. Spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts, no added sulfites.

Tasting Notes: Inky red-violet with frothy pink bubbles, with aromas of tart wild berries, violets and a hint of baking spices. Blackberry, red currant, pomegranate, blueberry and Morello cherry are underscored by smoky minerality and a drop of clover honey. Fresh acidity and astringent black tea tannins highlight tangy wild berries, a trace of black olive and wisps of smoke on the crisp finish.

Blend of Piedirosso and Aglianico [Consorzio rules are a minimum of 40% Piedirosso and maximum 20% Aglianico.]
