Ampeleia Unlitro Di Ampeleia
In the words of the importer "To say we have have long been a fan of Elisabetta Foradori and her brilliant wines of the Dolomiti would be a massive understatement. So, when we discovered she had teamed up with colleagues, Giovani Podini and Thomas Widmann on a Maremma project, we were immediately interested. When we discovered their single site Alicante and the farmhouse charm of “Unlitro”, we were sold! Ampeleia is a unique Maremma site in that they focus on Mediterranean varietals, (Alicante, Carignano) as opposed to big Super Tuscan styled reds. There is a verve and life to these wines that is infinitely crushable while maintaining integrity to the sites. Our crush (pun intended) continues!"
"Inspired by the vitality of their youngest vines in the Ampeleia di Mezzo site, Unlitro was created to showcase the youthful freshness of the site. Bright briar berry, black raspberry, hints of Mediterranean herbs, a slight bush aroma, and grainy red earth/juicy palate as well. With a modest alcohol level, and bright structure, this wine is as at home with light foods and snacks as it is just chilled, sitting in a tumbler, imagining a Tuscan sunset. A peasant wine in the best sense; infinitely fun and delicious."
