Collecapretta Lautizio- I've been hoarding this wine it's so beautiful
Red wine made from 100% Ciliegiolo from vineyards ranging from 15 to 50 years old. The must ferments for 10 days on the skins with indigenous yeasts in open conical trunk vats without temperature control; then it is drawn off and placed in a cement tanks where it rests all winter and undergoes the first racking with the waning moon of February. Second racking occurs at the end of March and then the wine is bottled in early April. No sulfur is added at any stage, and there is no filtering or fining.
Beautiful bright red cherries, truffly raspberries and balsamic with maybe a hint of cedar. Very crisp with an easy finish. This distinctive wine is a testament to the makers' skill.
