2018 Cantine Astroni Piedrosso Colle Rotondella
Piedirosso is also known as Per ‘e Palummo because during maturation, the original biotype stem turns a red color which is similar to a pigeon’s leg. It is a typical Campanian or better yet, Neapolitan vine because it is mainly widespread in the volcanic areas of the province of Naples. Mr. Hervé Lorin, an antiquarian of wines, defined it this way: "Perfectly original, totally forgotten and wonderfully decadent. It is not only a great wine, but an authentic old fashioned Cru." Colle Rotondella is produced with grapes from the Camaldoli Estate.
From the area of Camaldoli and Astroni in Campania on rough, sandy and tuffaceous terrain, at an altitude of 300 meters. Specifically the Campi Flegrei DOC at Lake Casamatte.
A clear and consistent wine, ruby red in color with violet hues. An intense nose, fine and complex, which presents fruity notes (red fruits such as currants and plums), mineral and floral (violet) as well as toasted and smoky notes typical and unmistakable of this grape variety. A dry, warm, and smooth palate. Good tannins, fresh, and sapid. A balanced full-bodied wine with good persistence and intensity.
Alcohol content 12.5%
