Montevetrano 'Core' Rosso 2019
The Montevetrano 'Core' s (pronounced COR-eh, meaning heart) Rosso is a Campania IGT red wine made from 100% Aglianico grapes. It is produced in Sannio, in the province of Benevento and bottled at the Montevetrano estate. Together, oenologist Riccardo Cotarella and Silvia Imparato, realised that Aglianico had found its ideal place in Sannio and there was a real prospect of making a wine with the same quality as the Montevetrano Red, but typical of its locale. Core Rosso was first released in 2011 to coincide with the 20th Anniversary of Montevetrano. Aged for 10 months in new French barriques and a further 4 months rest in bottle prior to release 'Core' Rosso is a fresh and dynamic red wine. Rich, spicy, fruity and elegant it delivers black cherry and liquorice aromas, well balanced acidity and subtle accents of dried herbs and blackberries.
