Named after the district where the vineyards are found, Cardamone is made of 80% Per' E Palummo (the local name for Piedirosso) and 20% Tintore di Tramonti, a local grape known for its very dark colour. The grapes come from very old vines, planted on their own roots* between 70 and 120 years ago; yields are very low, only 450 cases produced. The colour of this wine is indeed a deep appetizing dark purple-red with violet glints. In aroma and flavour, the wine is plummy, spicy (especially black pepper), chewy, and very long; it shows very attractive fresh fruit flavours from such a warm climate. The winemaking is expressive but completely clean, fermentation is done in stainless steel, and ageing in stainless steel and 400L barrels.
