The vine from which the Samnites obtained such wines
was also caburnica, the modern cabernet, already present in Campania three
millennia ago. The drying of the grapes in the sun produces the smoky flavor,
hence the Greek name.
Withering in open-air fruit tree. Aging in French oak barriques, first passage, for
18 months and long aging in bottle.
The color is purple red. The smell is reminiscent of blackberries and
blackcurrant. Full and balanced taste with melted tannins and a long finish of
sweetened toasted coffee, chocolate, tobacco and spices.
