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 grapes for the Angoris line of wines are harvested by hand in cru vineyards located on the steep slopes. On these hills the wines are typically bold with intense fragrances, spicy notes, and an enchanting complexity.
After a pre-fermentative cold maceration, the fermentation of the must with the skins takes place at controlled temperature for 12 days, followed by malolactic fermentation. Then the wine is aged for 6 months in tonneaux and 6 months in stainless steel tanks and 4 months in bottle.
The wine takes on a pale ruby colour. Intense aromas are jampacked with blackberry, raspberry, blueberry and a slight peppery note. On the palate it is dry, medium- bodied, has well-ripened soft tannins, elegant with plenty of acidity and a touch of spice.
