PARADISO 2012 marche red igt
The. Agr. San Lorenzo farm
Marche company with the winery located in Montecarotto in those of Ancona. Thirty hectares of property with vines that reach even i 50 years of age now for at least 25 years cultivated in biodynamics. The beating heart of this reality is Natalino Crognaletti considered one of the winemakers with the most lively personality of the Marche landscape. The progenitor was the grandfather, winemaker and cooper, then the father expert pruner and clone selector, and now Natalino who has developed his own production strategy, unique and original, in order to give life to its wines of clear territorial imprint: visceral and full of personality, in sharp contrast to commercial and modern fashions. No treatment in the vineyard, long maturations on the lees for whites and long macerations for reds, use of indigenous yeasts only, vinification in concrete and old barrels e, above all, give time to nature to be able to express itself.
The Paradiso is one of the few wines produced using only a selection of Lacrima di Morro d’Alba from a single vineyard called Vigna Paradiso. This vine is a Marche Rosso IGT which is grown only in a particularly limited area. Harvested at full phenolic ripeness, it is vinified in steel and then refined further 2 years in oak barrels. In the glass it is dark ruby red, almost impenetrable; the nose is very broad, enveloping warmth and expresses notes of ripe fruit such as cherry, blackberry, plum, also spiced with a hint of pepper and juniper. On the palate it is pulpy, long, wraparound, it gives the impression of being able to "chew" it from how rich and juicy it is. Paradiso is produced from a little-known vine which conquers both the nose and the palate, enveloping you in a warm and seductive embrace of aromas and flavors. Heavenly.
