Variety: Cabernet Franc
Ampeleia was born only just in 2002 from the collaboration and friendship between noteworthy icons—Elisabetta Foradori, Thomas Widmann, and Giovanni Podini. They created a place where they could not only develop an agricultural project but also fulfill a common dream. The estate comprises different plots of land, each located far apart and on different altitude levels—their mission is to create variables in altitude, soil type and microclimatic conditions. Variety is the spice of life, at least Ampeleia, representing the project’s constant quality and willingness to discover. The grape varieties that have been planted are common to Mediterranean vineyards reflecting the tradition of growing multiple varieties in the same vineyard. Today, the estate extends over three altitude levels and covers 35 hectares of vineyard.
This is high altitude Cabernet Franc from the Ampeleia di Sopra vineyard. The grapes are fully destemmed and fermentation is done in cement tanks and large oak tasks, resulting in a pure, clean, and fruity wine. The wine then ages for two years in bottle before it is released.
