Buy Casale del Giglio Lazio Rosso Mater Matuta
A deep, dense, ruby-red wine which displays outstanding personality both on the nose and on the palate with its aroma of coffee beans, violets, ripe black cherry, coriander, nutmeg and cinnamon. Silky and seductive, but perfectly supported by fine tannins and a pleasing astringency, Mater Matuta delivers a long, lush finish.

Shows aromas of plum and blackberry jam, with hints of licorice and mineral. Medium- to full-bodied, with lots of fresh, clean fruit and acidity. The fine tannins give a light pull on the finish. made by the Negroamaro grown outside of the DOC Salice from vineyards dry farmed, and of almost 50 years of age.
Wine maker notes
Syrah 85%, Petit Verdot 15%. Both red grape varieties are harvested when fully ripe (the Syrah may even be slightly shrivelled) and vinified in different ways. The submerged cap technique is favoured for the Syrah which ferments on native yeasts for 18-20 days. During the first few days of this process the fermenting must is racked and returned (the process of delestage) several times. Punching down is the technique adopted for the Petit Verdot as this approach guarantees an optimal extraction of the grape’s tannins and polyphenolic compounds. It is the resulting full-bodied Petit Verdot which gives Mater Matuta its long aging potential while the Syrah gives it its complexity of character, highlighted by smooth tannins and an intense aroma of black cherry and spice. As the new wines are carefully drawn off, each to its own first-fill barriques, the colour, tannins and aromas still present in the fermented skins are extracted in the soft presses to which they slide, aided by nothing more than natural gravity. After 22-24 months in oak the wines are blended and left undisturbed in the bottle for a further 10-12 months.

Food pairing
‘Provola di Bufala’ - buffalo milk cheese, estate-matured for 4-5 months in the newly fermented skins of Casale del Giglio’s own Syrah grapes.
