The estates history dates back to 1648 when the Roman Empire awarded 600 hectares to the Locatelli family. Nearly 400 years later and Marta Locatelli has taken the reigns, continuing the tradition of sustainable farming, including 75 hectares of grape vines including some of the rarest varieties in Italy.
The family dedicated the four finest wines to Giulio Locatelli, who bought the estate in 1968, 320 years after Locatello’s ownership, definitively weaving together the history of Tenuta di Angoris with the Locatelli name.
The 1ha Pignolo vineyard yields a mere 700 bottles annually! This special selection is macerated and fermented in open vats for 14 days before spending the next 48 months in tonneaux and another year in bottle before release.
The wine is complex and intriguing, rugged yet elegant. Ripe red fruit, leather, cocoa, coffee, tobacco and cherries present themselves on the nose and palate. Firm velvety tannins and electric acidity keep your tastebuds engaged through a long lingering finish.
