Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 93
"This is a pure expression of organic Alicante Nero, otherwise known as Grenache. The Ampeleia 2018 Alicante opens to a lean appearance with light ruby and garnet highlights. This wine boasts a spectacular bouquet that is highlighted by fragrant rose, lilac and violet. Fermentation sees 10 days of skin contact and 30% whole clusters. Fruit is sourced from the cool and breezy Vigna della Pieve with stony soils. There is a touch of crunch or bite on the tannins. This production of 7,000 bottles absolutely stands out for its elegance and beautiful floral intensity." -Robert Parker
