Ampeleia, Maremma


Another compelling red, the 2010 Ampeleia is dark and rich but not at all heavy. An exotic melange of blackberries, sage, rosemary and crushed rocks emerges over time, but it is the wine`s textural finesse that impresses most. This is a seriously beautiful wine from Ampeleia. The blend is approximately 60% Cabernet Franc, 25% Sangiovese and 15% assorted other grapes.
