Ampeleia ‘Unilitro’ Rosso Toscano, biodynamic wine, litre bottle, Mediterranean blend, aged in concrete, very fresh red wine, notes of black olive, red fruits and Mediterranean herbs. The wine ‘Unlitro’ – meaning one litre of Ampeleia – is an expression of Ampeleia’s vitality and subtly delicate nature. The wine is predominantly Alicante, the local name for Grenache with a little Carignan and Alicante Bouschet, – one of those rare grapes with red pulp. 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. Nice served lightly chilled when warm outside, eat with ‘Caponata’ and fennel sausage.
