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. The nose is a sequence of notes of wild
berries, black pepper, chocolate, and a hint of balsamic. The taste is
harmonious and very balanced, a trail spiced with flavors of blackberries and
blueberries followed by long finish with hints of spice and silky smooth
Pairs well with grilled meats, pork and aged cheeses.
