Cafone ‘18, Podere San Biagio, Italy
Cafone; Named for the wasters & the bums this wine judges not!
Young gun Jacopo farms a teeny 5 hectares of vines for this wine within a significant eco conscious agro legacy where they have been restoring ancient native heritage crops to the landscape & reclaiming an environment caring supply chain. Firm & bursting with fruit there’s a stunning acidity & freshness to this subtly powerful wine. She’s all lush dark berries, plums & sour cherry with a capsicum,oregano intrigue. You could cellar her for a decade & easily be laughing on the other side.
Jacopo’s priority is always to bottle age, coaxing the most alluring characteristics from the wine to make it shine and this beauty is a phenomenal all rounder.
