"Sotto Le Stelle" Lazio IGT Maturano 2017 - I Ciacca

In stock
Product Details
This long skin contact Maturano is exceptional!
Deep intense gold colour with prominent reflections. Musk notes nose with vibrant stone fruit, little citrus but bright white flower, honey spice notes and cooking apple.
Candied citrus and yellow plum to a marked minerality reminiscent of flint. Decisive but not invasive on palate, complex yet elegant and vibrant. Beautifully persistent and balanced.

Don't be fooled by its golden colour, it has the body of a red wine and finesse of white... truly unique!

The Maturano grape has been revived by Cesidio Di Ciacca, in his beautiful estate in Picinisco, located between Rome and Naples. This ancient variety is to be found only in Picinisco and nearby. DNA analysis shows it is not related to any other grapes to be found in the world. It is Certified Organic - although Cesidio knew anyway as this land was an ancient vineyard, which had been abandoned for over 50 years - but worked by our family for at least 500 years!

Star-winemaker Alberto Antonini took it upon himself to make great wine from this unique variety and indeed succeeded!

Only 612 bottles made in 2017!
