The story is well-represented on the label ironically by a wolf with lambskin. The Carmenere vine is a native of Bordeaux, confused for a long time with the Cabernet franc. Although organoleptic traits in common, is a grape very different: much more intense and spicy. Ca’ del Bosco has given the task in 1996 at the Faculty of Agriculture of the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart in Piacenza to reveal the existence, origin and identity. This ‘Sebino Rosso’ (the IGP sub-appellation where the grapes are grown) grapes are hand-picked in 2 distictintive vineyards, planted about 30 years ago, and immediately placed in small crates, where they are grade and chilled. After more hand-selection, destemming & maceration, this wine is aged in French oak barrels for 18 months. Garnet red, very intense bouquet, concentrated, complex, rich and appealing. Notes of red fruits and jam, plus a little liquorice, vanilla, cocoa and a hint of cinnamon. On the palate an excellent structure, very firm body, yet very fine and elegant with round tannins. In the final a convincing aromatic persistence.   Veronelli: 92 points – Crafted from organically-grown grapes
