Established in 2003, Adria Vini is a winemaking venture jointly owned by Boutinot and Araldica Castelvero, the leading co-operative in the Monferrato hills of Piemonte. All aspects of production, from grape selection through to vinification, maturation, blending and bottling are meticulously overseen by Araldica’s winemaking team. In the Vineyard – Grapes are sourced from southern Sicily, around Riesi – Nero dAvolas traditional heartland. In the Winery – Traditional fermentation at 26 to 30C, between 5 and 10 days maceration, bottled young with no oak ageing. Tasting Notes – Ripe plum and black cherry aromas with a hint of spice. A plump and juicy red with savory, lightly spicy and smoky characters – plus a hint of bitter chocolate and nip of tannin on the finish.
