Description Technical Specs (May be in Italian If There Is Not an English Version Available)

Ischia DOC is located on the island of Ischia, the largest of the Phlegrean islands, in the Bay of Naples in Campania. Its vine heritage dates back to 700 BC.

Dei Mille Anni made of mainly Perepalummo grape, also called Piedirosso in Campania. Perepalummo is the dialect translation of “for the pigeon”, and Piedirosso (“red feet” in Italian) is referred to the red feet of the pigeon, reflecting the bottom of the vine, which used to be red similar to the feet of a pigeon. The rest of the blend is composed of Aglianico and Cabertnet. This full-bodied red wine is driven by the volcanic and mineral influences of the Island, with essence of Mediterranean sea salt on the palate. Smooth, round, and complex, it has aromas of raspberry, currant, ripe plum, dark chocolate, tobacco, ripe red cherry, and licorice on the finish. Here, you can really experience a wine with the purity of Ischia terroir and no manipulation.
Ready to drink now, but with an outstanding ageing potential, it is excellent with pork, red meats, rich pastas, and cheese.
