Il Vescovo

Il Vescovo is our award winning flagship red wine. It was the first of our five wines. Made with a mix of our Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec (IGT) grapes, it is a complex, unique and elegant blend that is rich and full-bodied. An incredibly tasty and generously balanced red wine that won 2 stars of excellence at the London 2015 Bellavita awards.

Winemaking

The grapes, which are hand cut, are vinified with a temperature-controlled fermentation. They undergo a long maceration period so the tannins, colour and aromas can be developed. We age this robust wine in steel barrels for 9 months so the flavour can develop then for a further 4 months in the bottle.

Organoleptic Description  

The fruity and intoxicating blend of Malbec with the spicy and persistent notes of Cabernet Sauvignon, give life to a blend of flavours and aromas that are complex, elegant, rich and full-bodied.
 

Serving temperature

We recommend putting it in the fridge for 20-30 minutes before serving. Unusual we know, but we promise you it is delicious.
From Puglia, Italy, with love ❤️
