To say we have have long been a fan of Elisabetta Foradori and her brilliant wines of the Dolomiti would be a massive understatement. So, when we discovered she had teamed up with colleagues, Giovani Podini and Thomas Widmann on a Maremma project, we were immediately interested. When we discovered their single site Alicante and the farmhouse charm of “Unlitro”, we were sold!
Ampeleia is a unique Maremma site in that they focus on Mediterranean varietals, (Alicante, Carignano) as opposed to big Super Tuscan styled reds. There is a verve and life to these wines that is infinitely crushable while maintaining integrity to the sites. Our crush (pun intended) continues!
