Lazio Rosso Appia Antica 400, Alberico

50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc from a massal selection of the prince’s original clonal material. It was said the prince tore up his vines when he retired in 1995, but four rows of Cabernet and four rows of Merlot were left behind, and the new plantings that Appia Antica sources come from these original plantings that date to the 1940s. The grapes are destemmed and fermented in temperature controlled concrete tanks. The wine spends 6 months in concrete and then 10 months in bottle before release.
