Terra di Briganti

Sciascinoso 2017

Very few producers in Campania bottle this grape as a single varietal wine and Terra di Briganti is among them. The vast majority of the producers blend it with Aglianico and Piedirosso, in the Lacrima Christi appellation and in all the other tiny appellations on the Amalfi Coast. Briganti’s Sciascinoso has been totally fermented in stainless steel vats. The ageing process continues in tanks and then the wine is racked to fiberglass vats. Unfined and unfiltered. Certifications: Organic, biodynamic (carrying the Demeter logo) and vegan. The wine presents a lively violet color,  a good load of forward fresh forest fruit and nice acidity. The variety itself very rarely exceeds 13% Abv, and the 2017 vintage is listed at only 12,5% Abv. This wine can be slightly chilled.
