Tasting Notes: Dusting chocolate, blackberry, fresh-plucked cherry
The Amore Rosso inspires conviviality and is our nod to delicious old school classic field blends. As a field blend, all of the reds were picked on the same day from Fox Hill, our estate vineyard in Mendocino. The Barbera and Dolcetto grapes were co-fermented together in stainless open top fermenters and then pressed into a mix of concrete tanks and neutral French barrique to age. The Negro Amaro was made as a rosé, foot stomped and left on the skins for 24 hours, then pressed and fermented in stainless steel. All of the wine aged for nine months then blended before bottling. The wine’s bright acid and slight juiciness make it great on its own with a subtle structure that is perfect for pizza and a wide range of foods.
