You’ll taste/smell: A blend of Mediterranean grapes from the coast of Tuscany, this is a summer red, think of it as an almost rosé.

Pomegranate, orange peel, and black olives notes, herbaceous and fresh. It finishes with a slightly bitter note that just keeps you going back for more. Even better: comes in a 1-liter bottle!

Good to have it with: Pizzas, pastas, hams, salamis, this is a wine to enjoy with friends anytime.

Best to have it: To enjoy it at its best, we recommend you let it “breathe” for 15-20 minutes and chill it for 45 minutes (not too cold) before serving.

Description

Balsamic character on the nose, wild herbs and spices hints. Well defined on the palate, clear-cut and neat. Contrasting finish with pleasantly bitter notes of cherries and wild strawberries.

After years of experience, Ampeleia has achieved a deeper awareness of the natural world around us and their vineyards. The character of the land emerges clearly in the wines. It is this new awareness that inspired us to conceive a third wine sourced from the youngest vineyards.

The name of the wine is ‘Unlitro’ – one liter of Ampeleia – an expression of Ampeleia’s vitality and subtly delicate nature.

AZIENDA AMPELEIA, Roccateterighi, Maremma  – Certified organic and biodynamic by Q Certificazioni and Demeter. Here is a little article about the Ampeleia Estate

Ampeleia (from the Greek word for ‘vine’) is owned by Elisabetta Foradori and Giovani Podini. The winemaker and agronomist, Marco Tait has been with the estate since its inception in 2002. It was founded with Elisabetta’s overarching vision of allowing the true nature of an area, its diversity, its grapes, land, and culture to be expressed. The wildness of the southern Maremma, bounded by the Colle Metallifere and the sea were virgin territory, far removed from the glamour of Bolgheri and Montalcino. The estate is large and biodiverse with a total of 40 ha of vineyard interspersed with chestnut and cork oak forests as well as Mediterranean scrub. There are three parts, across differing altitudes, with differing soils and microclimates: Ampeleia di Sopra; di Mezzo and di Sotto.
