Producer's Notes: Opaque black crimson red color with deep dark crimson red hue. Lifted ripe dark cherry and plum scents are followed by some leathery earth like characters and spice. Medium to full bodied the palate possesses a generous almost joosy like flavor profile of ripe dark cherries and dark plum with some leathery overtones and a spicy back palate. Very fine grained tannins. Good depth with medium to long ripe dark cherry, earthy leather and spice aftertaste.
Located in Medoro, a small village located near Atri in Abruzzo, Villa Medoro entered the Della Loggia-Morricone family when Luigi Della Loggia purchased the property in 1966. Today the estate includes more than 250 hectares, with 107 under vine. Set in the beautiful Teramo hills overlooking the green Adriatic, the region is particularly well-suited to viticulture. Since taking up her family’s estate at the age of 22 in 1996, Federica Morricone has greatly elevated Villa Medoro’s objectives, producing a consistent string of exceptional wines that passionately reflect the unique terroir of a region where wineries more often prioritize quantity over quality. Riccardo Cotarella, one of Italy’s leading vine/ wine consultants, has collaborated with Villa Medoro since 2003, and an amazing state-of-the-art winery was completed in 2012 to bring ever greater vinicultural results within reach. The motto “Villamedoro l’anima del vino,” Villa Medoro is the soul of wine, drives this 50+ year-old family estate.
