Vini Conestabile Case Sparse Umbria Rosso -Silky Smooth and red hot, excellent
Winemaker Danilo Marcucci says he tries to coax the minerals out of the soil to marry with the yeasts on the grape skins to create a sort of alchemy that not only presents as “terroir” but also helps stabilize and preserve the wine without additives. It is transformative, This rosso from his new project, Casa Sparse, is mind-blowing in its purity and simplicity. It tastes like cinnamon Red Hots-infused cherry juice sprinkled with forest floor dust, and the texture is so silky and sexy that you literally purr with delight. Somehow, Danilo has managed to capture the earth, fruit and soul of Umbria without the weight that often comes with. Please feel inspired to serve slightly chilled.
