Description
 

The name Ambruco is a linguistic contamination of vitis labrusca - wild vine; there is a place near Castel Campagnano of the same name, where centuries-old wild vines used to grow, and local peasants considered them almost holy because of their age.
Produced from 100% Pallagrello Nero, this wine is powerful and elegant, with a full body and a deep ruby color.
Pairs well with grilled meats, pork and aged cheeses.

Rated 93 by Vinous Media

In the 2015 Pallagrello Nero Ambruco I find a spicy display of crushed blackberries, complemented by a dusty mix of mint leaf, licorice, dried orange peel, and a hint of bay leaf. On the palate, soft, fleshy textures give way to blue and black fruits, backed by vibrant acids, as minerals drench the senses, creating an energetic yet also refined expression. It finishes long, with a coating of liquid purple florals, echoes of ripe black fruits, smoked meats, and a hint of tannin. The 2015 Ambruco (100% Pallagrello Nero) is an undeniably beautiful wine that is completely open for business and worth seeking out.

The 2015 Ambruco represents perfectly the Pallagrello Nero grape. This warm and sunny vintage has shaped a generous and fruit-forward expression of the Campania variety with bright aromas of dried blackberry, candied cherry, plum, spice and grilled herb. The wine finishes with bright acidity and sharp berry flavors. You get lots of authentic and rustic personality with this cheerful wine. Pair it with your favorite Italian pasta dishes. It ages in barrique for one year. Only 5,000 bottles were made.
