Winemaker's Notes

"Dark red, the deepest colored of the wines in this line-up. Deep but closed nose of outstanding complexity, suggesting intense, ripe red cherry, black pepper, thyme, minerals, lavender and smoke. Seamless and compelling on the palate, with amazing purity to its red cherry, tobacco, cedar and mineral flavors. Finishes with outstanding palate-staining length. This has to be one of the ten best wines of the year in Italy, and will probably live longer than you or I."
-International Wine Cellar

A gorgeous, elegant, intense wine, the 'Feudo di Mezzo' is deep ruby in color and packed with sweet fruit. A blend of Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio, it has great texture, flesh and finesse, with a powerfully long finish. What's more, this wine will age beautifully.

One of the most exciting wines I've tasted in 2009. Reminds me of a great Barolo or Burgundy. Elegant and intense.
