Mostly Nerello Mascalese with a touch of Nerello Cappuccio and Alicante Bouschet. Sourced from biodynamically-grown, own-rooted bush vines on a cool, north-facing vineyard composed of volcanic sand and ash. The hand-harvested grapes are gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel before being racked into used French oak barrels for 24 months. It spends an additional 18 months aging in bottle before release.
An intense, almost brooding nose of ripe blackberry, black cherry, mulling spices, pipe tobacco and flint. The real genius of Foti can be found on the palate of this wine, where immense concentration and power is delivered in a silken, lifted manner. Lacey textures coupled with bold flavors combine to make this wine an absolute showstopper.
