Ultimate Beverage Challenge 87 points - Deep brick red in color, this richly spiced red is bursting with crushed black fruit character. In the mouth, it’s rich and full bodied with assertive tannins. Hints of mocha and eucalyptus add a savory dimension to this wine.  (Jul 2015)

Wine Spectator 91 points - Mocha, sweet brown bread and vanilla notes accent the flavors of creamed boysenberry, black licorice drop and herbed black olive in this juicy red, with plush tannins. A modern style, but the oak finds enough fleshy flavor for balance. Smoke and graphite hints linger on the chewy finish. Drink now through 2025. 5,000 cases made.-AN  (May 31 2015)

Wine maker notes
100% Aglianico del Vulture from 70 to 80 year old vines grown on volcanic soil rich in clay, calcium, nitrogen and tuff. Pre-fermentative maceration takes place at 41°F for 10 days and is followed by fermentation carried out using natural yeasts for 60 days at a maximum temperature of 79°F. The wine is put into new barriques for 24 months. Intense deep ruby with hints of chocolate with a persistent creamy and fruity finish. The result is a wine with a marked personality with silky, highly persistent tannins.

Producer
Since the takeover of the vineyard from his father in 1999, Marc goes into organic farming in order to respect the environment, protect her health and that of its employees and give the wines the spirit of their land. Today the vineyard of 20 ha is divided into three types of soil (gravel, Clay limestone and flint clay) that give rise to very different wines.
