ALL OUR GRAPES HAVE CERTIFIED ORGANIC STATUS
Il Vescovo is our award winning flagship red wine. Made with a mix of our Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec (IGT) grapes, it is a complex 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.
Our labels have a personal meaning but all reflect either a story, the history of Italy or the grape.
HOW WE NAMED IT - Il Vescovo: translates to The Bishop. Our uncle Franco had added a small chapel on our land and had invited Bishop Domenico Padovano from the town of Conversano to undertake the mass. We thought we were ready but at the last minute we realised we were missing the wine! Not something we were short of! So, Bishop Domenico used our wine - in the bottle – no label, no name! He absolutely adored it and after using it for the consecration ceremony, he happily went away with a few samples! This is why we named it the bishop: Il Vescovo and the picture on the label is our homage to San Nicola, who is the patron saint of Bari.
70% Malbec 30% Cabernet Sauvignon IGT
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.
