A blend of Carménère, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grapes from Le Mortelle's best vineyards. Ampio was born from an idea, made possible by an excellent vintage, to represent the highest expression of the Maremma terroir.
Ampio delle Mortelle comes from the best vineyards on the estate, from grapes picked in small crates and transferred to the winery for careful manual sorting. Only selected grapes reached the special truncated cone tanks filled by gravity, ensuring the integrity of each fruit. Their shape and the special fulling system guarantee a delicate but decisive vinification process that enhances the aromas, tannin balance and varietal characteristics. The different lots, separated by variety, were transferred to new French oak barriques where malolactic fermentation took place and subsequent maturation for approximately 18 months. The wine was then blended and aged for a further 12 months in the bottle before being presented to the market.

Ampio delle Mortelle 2017 has a dark ruby red colour. The nose expresses its character with notes of coffee and black pepper accompanied by pleasant aromas of small black berries such as blackberries and blueberries; delicate sensations of aromatic herbs, chocolate and wild mint complete the fascinating "bouquet". On the palate, the impact is powerful, of great elegance, with silky tannins. The finish is persistent, enveloping, with slight nuances of liquorice and black cherry.
