No. 3 Vinum Italicum Opera
Platinum: Best Red Regional Italy
40% Corvina, 30% Primitivo, 30% Nero d'Avola
Rich, ripe red fruit nose augmented by aromas of coffee and spicy oak. Full-bodied with concentrated dark red fruit flavours bolstered by chewy tannins and a firm oak character. Finishes long; a food wine. The wine was judged as a 2005 vintage. However, after judging the wine, the producer informed us that the 2005 is referring to the year the wine was founded rather than the vintage. The producer confirmed that the wine is a NV but wish not to reveal the different years used in the blend.
