2017 La Sibilla Campi Flegrei Piedirosso

SKU #1416683

Importer's notes: "What a delicious red wine. '...soft tannins and berryish flavors are kicked up with a spicy note of cinnamon and dried cherry...distinctive savor and bright acidity' as David Lynch says of Piedirosso in his excellent Vino Italiano. This is a very versatile food wine: serve it with salmon, pork, substantial pasta dishes, and other great everyday dishes. Just north of Naples, right on the coast of Campania, there is a very small grape-growing area called the Campi Flegrei. The soil is so sandy here that the vines can be planted directly in it, without being grafted to other rootstock. Perhaps it is this very unusual fact that makes these wines so distinctive, along with the great care given to the vines and the wine by Luigi di Meo and his family. Since European viticulture was wiped out by the phylloxera insect in the last half of the nineteenth century, there is great nostalgia for the Golden Age of wine made from ungrafted vines. Here is a very rare opportunity for you to taste for yourself."

While Aglianico seems to be the most heralded and best known red grape varietal of Campania, Piedirosso is far lesser known and usually blended with Aglianico to produce local wines. This particular Piedirosso comes from a very sandy zone north of Naples known as Campi Flegrei, where ungrafted (pre-phylloxera)vines result in wines with excellent natural acidity and lower alcohol levels. Remarkably inspite of the lower alcohol, this rare red offers up plenty of ripe berry fruit, ample palate weight and good length. It's a versatile red and a special treat that brings a nearly extinct past to the present.
