ILatium Morini, Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore, DOC, Campo dei Ciliegi, Veneto, Italy

Regular price £17.99

Intense Valpolicella Ripasso, wild cherry flaours, rich with tamed tannins.

Inspired by the quality of the wines produced by their neighbour, Romano dal Forno, the seven brothers and cousins who own Latium Morini ddecided not to sell their grapes to the locale Cantine Sociale, as their forefathers had for years but to make their own wines instead. Latium originates from the Latin name for their hometown, Illasi, which lies in the eastern part of the Valpolicella district. Over 2000 years ago the Romans established the towns and villages in the area and planted vines and olive trees and so this land has a long viticultural tradition.

Tasting Note: Intense garnet in colour with ripe cherries, herby and earthy aromas. A warm and dry sour cherry palate in the fore, with loads of intensity of raisins and sultanas and a rich fresh soft tannic finish.
