Offida Rosso Doc Baccofino 2011

baccofinoM2Baccofino is our Doc Offida Rosso with a blend of 80% Montepulciano and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon from the wonderful growing season of 2010. Starting with a severe green harvest leaving a maximum of one grape cluster per branch and finishing with hand picking at optimum ripeness, these two wines were vinified separately and then kept 2 years in a 2,500 liter french oak barrel before bottling in February 2013. As with all our wines, only organic farming methods were used and all work with the vines other than spraying is done by hand. Nothing other than minimal sulfites have been added to Baccofino and that just enough to give stability in the bottle to ensure long aging without spoilage.
Few grape varieties exhibit the deep violet-ruby color of a rich Montepulciano and this wine definitely shows richness in both its profound color and flavors. The Cabernet Sauvignon adds a depth of character and balance to the wine, which is drinkable now, but should improve for years with aging.
The label was designed by our friend Naomi Muirhead, an american transplant living and teaching art and jewelry design in Florence, Italy and shows her collage of our mascot Bacco, a flat coated retriever you will meet when you visit PS Winery. The background of the label is a watercolor painted by Sabrina Gianno' of Rome, Italy and shows our vineyard and B&B.
3,200 bottles were produced and we also still have very limited quantities of the wonderful 100% Montepulciano, Pieno Monte, from 2010 and the Cabernet Sauvignon, C S, from the same year for you to try. Released 19 November, 2013
