2015 Cacc'e Mmitte di Lucera "Agramante" (Petrilli, Paolo)

Paolo Petrilli, Cacc'e Mmitte di Lucera "Agramante", Daunia, Puglia, Italy 2015

{Organic} Nero di Troia, Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Bombino

DARK RIPE FRUIT & CLAY; TANNIC & BRIGHT; BEAUTIFULLY BALANCED

It's hard to dispute that stony soil makes great wine; it's no wonder that Paolo Petrilli is able to elevate the humble, rustic, and rough Nero di Troia grape to these heights. Not to give all the credit to the earth; Paolo adds a splash of Sangiovese and Montepulciano to soften and round out the wine. Black cherry and pomegranate, a bit of plum, a little white pepper, a dab of wet clay, and a few fallen leaves. “When we started this was a simple, cheap product. I decided to aim for something greater.” Bloody good shot, signore.

Serving Suggestion: Stromboli, filled to bursting w/ mozzarella, provolone piccante, mixed bell peppers, mushrooms, red onions, garlic, & black olives. Or skip the veggies, & layer in finocchiona, Serrano ham, & coppa.
