Ampeleia Unlitro Toscana Rosso 2020 (1L)
Ampeleia Unlitro Toscana Rosso 2020 (1L)

Azienda Ampeleia is a domaine on the Costa Toscana founded in 2002, and is the result of a fortuitous encounter between Elisabetta Foradori (one of the greatest Italian winegrowers), Thomas Widmann, and Giovanni Podini, who found a perfect place to express their vision in Ampeleia. In 2009, the domaine began to make the transition to biodynamic management and now produces wines which perfectly reflect their very complex and diverse terroirs. This wine is a blend of varieties originating from the Mediterranean Basin— 40% Alicante Nero (aka Grenache), 25% Mourvedre, 15% Carignano, 15% Sangiovese, 5% Alicante Bouschet—sourced from vineyards at 180-250 meters above sea level.  In accordance with its principles of respect for the land, the vineyard is biodynamically certified and the wine is fermented using native yeasts. This wine for keeping is lively, fresh and juicy on the palate, dominated by red and black berries and enhanced by a few spicy notes.

French Beaches Juicy Red 2019
French Beaches Juicy Red 2019

“Mediterranean climate. Vineyards located in Languedoc-Roussillon. Clay-limestone and clay-silty soils. Striking in colour, the bouquet conjures an orchard of ripe fruit. The first sip reveals an opulent palate of cocoa dusted espresso and dark cherry with vibrant fleshiness. Living up to its name, this has beautiful, juicy raspberry and cherry notes and oh-so-silky tannins. Ageing on fine lees, in stainless steel tank, during a maximum of three months. The addition of sulfites is limited.” Producer Notes

L’Indigène Mas des Agrunelles 2019
L’Indigène Mas des Agrunelles 2019

L’Indigene is a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Carignan. On the nose it is fleshy with notes of ripe dark berries and briar patch. There is a distinct meatiness that makes you think of salami with garrigue herbs and cracked pepper. On the palate, it is full bodied, textured and robust, with solid acidity and smooth tannins. Fruit notes of blackberry, raspberry and black cherry are concentrated and juicy without being over-ripe. The earthy notes from the nose continue and blend with the savoury notes of lavender, rosemary and white pepper.

A light red meant to be drunk with a solid chill made of a co-fermentation of Cinsault and Carignan.

Wild fermentation, no filtering or fining, bottled without additives save a tiny dose of sulfites.

Testalonga Follow Your Dreams 2019

Testalonga Baby Bandito Follow Your Dreams wine is a hugely aromatic and medium-bodied skin contact Carignan with aromas of crushed berries and flowers. The palate reveals sour cherry, strawberry and bright acidity, but then evolves to sweeter potpourri-like floral notes of violets and a lingering savoury finish.
