Drinking Window: 2022 - 2027
From the Impervio vineyard on the Maternigo estate, the grapes for this wine are harvested slightly overripe and then dried for around two weeks to dry the stems enough to aid pressing, Maternigo undergoes a longer-than-average post-fermentation maceration, followed by maturation for 14 months in Slavonian oak casks. Bold red and black fruits and some earthy hints lead to an intense, deep and concentrated palate that's almost jammy in its sweetness. It's a potent fruit bomb but gains structure and balance from soft tannins and tangy acidity, with a herbal finish.
