Variety: Cabernet Franc
The wines of Ampeleia have captivated my palate for years. My first exposure was to the estate’s Super Tuscan primarily made from Cabernet Franc. Yet, as I got to know more and more about the winery and the people behind the bottles I began to realize their vision was moving towards what they call “Mediterranean basin” varietals. Ampeleia’s “Ampeleia” is the estate’s flagship wine and has been getting attention since its first bottling shortly after the property was founded in 2002.
“Ampeleia is one of the stars of the Tuscan coast ... At their best, the Ampeleia wines are among the most pure, transparent expressions of the coast readers will find. Elisabetta Foradori and her team are doing important work here. Ampeleia is a young estate. There is every reason to believe the best is yet to come.” —Antonio Galloni
