Ampeleia | Costa Toscana Rosso 2017 / 750 ml.

Item#: 47277

RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 14th Jan 2021
The organic 2017 Ampeleia is a pure expression of Cabernet Franc with fruit selected from across various parcels planted at a cool 500 to 600 meters above sea level. The wine sees 15 days of fermentation on the skins in large oak casks. This 17,000-bottle production opens to a dark color and concentration, showing pretty aromas of pressed rose, tart cherry, dried apricot and tilled soil. Like the other wines from Ampeleia, this expression shows a lasting sense of inner elegance that transcends the heat and drought of the 2017 vintage. (Monica Larner)
SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Aug 31, 2021
A fresh, floral and fruity version, this red reveals cherry, raspberry and rose aromas and flavors, with flashes of wild herbs and iron. Light on its feet, yet with volume and a firm, chalky finish. Best from 2023 through 2032. 1,250 cases made, 375 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)

Where It's From

Region / Tuscany

View more wines from Tuscany

There are few regions as picturesque as Italy's Tuscany. And there are few regions that produce finer wines, either. Tuscany is home to legendary wine regions Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti, among others, where the red wine grape Sangiovese is king. It's also home to "Super Tuscans," a category of Tuscan wines that don't officially fall within the Italian wine classification system.

Country / Italy

View more wines from Italy

Italy is famous for its powerful, sleek, and elegant reds wines from ancient growing areas with legendary names such as Chianti, Barolo, Barbaresco, Montepulciano. Italian white wines are also gaining popularity: Orvieto, Pinot Grigio, and Sauvignon are excellent examples of Italian white wines.

Wines of Italy are complex and flavorful, much like the culture that is their source and the cuisine that is their match.
