Tasting Notes

Produced from the rare Centesimino grape indigenous to the region, there's something slightly Bordeaux like about this, but distinctly Italian too, with notes of good balsamic, squashy strawberries, ripe cherries and a sprinkle of cinnamon, wild oregano and spice. It's quite a profound drop, and the sort of wine to dip in and out of and muse over an evening, as it unfolds with time open. A fine seam of acidity and mineral backbone and lightly grippy tannins compliment the notes of cedar, crushed rocks and dark fruit on the palate. 

More Info

Located in the unique terroir of Modigliana, on the border of Emilia Romagna and Tuscany, Villa Papiano's vineyards are the highest in the area, planted on terraces between 450-570 metres above sea level. Their wines are defined by the estate's high elevation and steep slopes, ancient soils of marl and sandstone, and unique microclimates created by the dense forest that surrounds them. Farming organically, in a way that respects their incredible surroundings and winemaking with minimal intervention, the Bordini family focus almost exclusively on indigenous varieties and old clones. These are remarkable wines from a terroir that we're adamant will soon be talk of the town.
