About

92

"The stone, slate and light salt character with dried apple and lemon is so interesting. Full body. Drink now."

92 Wine Enthusiast

"Intriguing aromas evoking sea brine, Mediterranean scrub, mature citrus zest and a hint of pineapple follow over to the racy palate along with yellow apple and a hint of hazelnut. Vibrant acidity and a tangy saline note give it a crisp, savory finish. -KO"

90 Wine & Spirits

"This wine’s succulent flavors and lightly chewy texture create the impression of biting into a perfectly ripe peach. Juicy and fresh, with floral scents and a hint of lime zest, it has enough tangy acidity to balance the ripe fruit, leaving you refreshed and ready for another sip."

Product Description:

From the Importers' Website: 6 hours of cryomaceration with soft pressing and fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine spends an additional 8 months in tank before bottling and release. Calpazio is the name of a local mountain, at the foot of which lies one of the San Salvatore vineyards. Exuberant wine, harmonious, with great body and length. Notes of peach, apricot, honey and citrus aromas; very typical of this variety cultivated by the sea.
