Tasting Notes

Lifted perfumes of dark fruits, plums and cherries and a hint of mocha. A deep ruby red in colour, with bright notes of dark fruits, plums and cherries with a hint of mocha. This wine has soft, ripe tannins and a delicious chocolate-cherry finish.

Producer details

Il Faggio is made at one of the region's best co-operatives in the northern part of the Abruzzi. The aim is to capture in the bottle the power and intensity of the grape, together with a lift and freshness which is seldom found in wine from this region. The name, Il Faggio, derives from the fabulous beech trees which proliferate in this area, especially in the Abruzzo national park.

In the winery

Only the best quality grapes were chosen for this blend, from primarily hand-harvested fruit. At the winery the grapes were de-stemmed, crushed and pumped to stainless steel tanks where selected yeast strains were used and fermented for about 6 days. Regular pump overs took place, more frequently during the first few days, to increase extraction which became less frequent towards the end of the fermentation process. After pressing, the wine was transferred to tank for malolactic fermentation to take place.
