"Íchnos" Piedirosso Campi Flegrei DOC 2019 - Cantavitae

Íchnos is a Greek word meaning footprint. It stems from the winery's desire to promote a great vine from the Campi Flegrei area. We are talking about the so-called pér 'e palummo, or Piedirosso, in this case cultivated on a free-range basis. An indigenous black grape variety from Campania, it enjoys an enviable microclimate in this little corner of paradise, about 130 metres above sea level. Its curious name derives from the red colour that the vine-shoot takes on when it is ready to be harvested and which may remind one of a pigeon's foot. In the glass it has a beautiful bright ruby red colour. The nose recalls hints of cherry, then notes of aromatic herbs, hints of liquorice and black pepper. In the mouth, however, it reveals its Campanian origins, showing a nice body, a pleasantly soft and enveloping taste, with tannins in good evidence. A wine characterised by good balance, it easily accompanies meat dishes, even savoury ones. Try it with a country soup of legumes or vegetables.

Azienda Agricola CantaVitae is located in Marano di Napoli. The winery is run by a young agronomist and oenologist, Michelangelo Schiattarella, a true wine craftsman. The company's vineyards are located in different areas of the region. The fundamental choice, in fact, was to link the grapes to the territory of origin. The Piedirosso and Falanghina varieties come from Campi Flegrei and are used for the production of DOC wines. Aglianico and Falanghina come from Sannio, while Primitivo comes from the Aurunci area, between lower Lazio and the province of Caserta. However, the main focus of activities takes place in the cellar. The white and red wines follow different procedures and timescales. Each bunch of grapes is carefully selected and processed in full respect of the raw material. Each vat is followed and monitored at all stages, so that the wines can reach the delicate stage of refinement at the right time, without stress.
