LOCATIONS I ITALY
Following the overture of I-1, we proudly offer the second act of Locations, Italia. With over 2000 indigenous grape varieties to select and compose a blend, an exhaustive search was undertaken to pay homage to this historic region. Maintaining the integrity of the land was paramount while simultaneously considering the result of a dynamic and innovative wine. Powerful and rich fruit from Puglia (Torricella and Manduria) serves as the base with a lively vein of acidity from Barbera (Alba) that stabilizes things in just the right way.
Locations I-2 Italian Red Wine is composed of Nero D'Avola and Negroamaro from Puglia, Barbera from Piedmont, and a small percentage of Sangiovese from Tuscany. It receives vinification in large oak and spends ten months in barrel prior to bottling...This serious, medium to full-bodied, tasty, distinctive wine can be consumed over the next several years. -90pts, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
