A wine full of character with a spicy aromatic impact of small red fruits with a touch of iodine and a full and decisive licorice finish that is earthy, meaty and visceral. A harmonious wine with heart.
This deep ruby-red wine displays aromas of red fruits and spices with undertones of licorice, earth, and leather.
Wine Spectator: The brambly black raspberry and herb notes are underscored by accents of graphite and star anise in this medium-bodied, balanced red, with light tannins. Aglianico. Drink now through 2017. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 900 cases made.
Core (pronounced Kor-Ay) is local dialect for “heart”, and the label (once again designed by the daughter of proprietress Silvia Imparato) evokes the love of life, and wine that is the spirit of Montevetrano. Core is sourced from particular experimental Aglianico plots on the estate in San Cipriano and also from outside growers in the classical Benevento area who are working closely with Riccardo Cotarella.
|This wine makes an excellent pairing with roasted lamb, grilled tenderloin, braised ossobuco and ripe cheeses.
|Proprietress Silvia Imparato indulged in wine as a hobby until she decided to rebuild her family’s vineyards in Montevetrano, in the oft-underestimated region of Campania. She employed the skills of highly regarded winemaker Riccardo Cotarella and they have created an outstanding icon wine they decided to name Montevetrano.
