Description

“Delinquente’s Hell – experimental, super small batch, boundary pushing wines.  

Negroamaro is the bitter black grape of Calabria, its earthiness, savoury bitter character really excites me. Picked early and treated simply, the fruit was handpicked and destemmed into one tonne open fermenters. Gentle hand plunging, post primary ferment the wine was pressed off to old oak for malo and maturation for about 8 months. Racked, and a touch of SO2 added, we then blended in a small amount of Montepulciano and Lagrein to give a faintly meaty backbone and tannin.”

This man is a Legend and so is his wine.
