Armaleo

Umbria igt

During the devastating frost of 1985 our old olive grove was destroyed. This put at our disposal a portion of our land we considered most suitable for vines. We decided to replant this land, not to olives, but to a small vineyard, using the same system as the ancient Etruscans. We chose Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, and from these grapes came our first bottle of Amaleo.

Grape varieties

Tasting notes

The wine is ruby red in color with glimpses of blue. The nose has a hint of minerals and sulphur but is typically Mediterranean with a light perfume of rosemary. The wine is decisive and the fruit breaks through the fullbodied structure and lingers long and fulsomely on the palate.

Serving suggestions

With meat that is not only lean, but has body, and a strong taste such as goat or venison. This wine enhances the enjoyment of mature goat cheeses.
