A bright, intensely concentrated, ruby-red wine. The nose reveals a very mature, dark personality – black cherry and damson jam to the fore, with undertones of wet autumn leaves and juniper. The palate is well-balanced and persistent with velvety tannins that reflect the dark, fruity, balsamic character of the nose.

CINGHIALE RATING 4.2
Madreselva takes its name from the wonderfully perfumed wild honeysuckle, or ‘madreselva’,which rambles its way through the shady undergrowth of the Agro Pontino. An equal blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Very deep red considering its age. Nose of earth, herbs and some barnyard-don't know if you wanted to like it or hate it. Beautifully constructed wine with equal balance of fruit, acidity and tannins. Mouth filling and rewarding, a delicious wine that we really could not identify as being Italian or from the south. The new vintages should prove very interesting and you should buy if you find it. However to have a fully mature sample is always great especially when it shows so well. (Nonna's Score 5 out of 5)( She likes wines from Rome, the Pope lives there or nearby))
Wine maker notes
An equal blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, all three red grape varieties are picked when fully ripe, but at quite different times. Merlot ripens in mid-September, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot much later. The vinification procedure, different for each variety in the blend, is described in the preceding profiles of the corresponding three monovarietal wines. When malolactic fermentation is complete the new wines mature in small oak casks for 18-20 months and after racking are blended together in equal proportions. Madreselva ages in the bottle for 8-12 months before leaving the winery.

Food pairing
‘Coda alla Vaccinara’ – Oxtail in a rich tomato sauce; peasant fare from the Roman tradition.
