Primodelia, the soft tannins of the Sibillini

Among towers, vineyards, dreams of rebirth and revenge one year after the tragic earthquake of the hinterland of Marche, Lazio, Umbro, the people of this land is angry. Promises from the government, visits in pomp Magna, collected funds almost never distributed, the people of Marche has certainly the tooth poisoned to those who guaranteed to commit. Entire shored buildings are recognized on the hilly horizon of the vineyards that host us. The morning murmur of nature is a relief in the face of catastrophe. Those who managed to walk towards one of the toughest climbs of life, with a destroyed house and with the pain of losing their loved ones, do so with the efforts of her sole shoulders. The necessary willingness to survive fights the institutional abandonment to which, nowadays, Italians are often obliged to undergo. We go back to the basement with a little sadness in the heart. We approach the tasting desk of a wine recognized over the years as an opulent label. A wine famous for its tannins. The blend of 5 grape varieties is formidable. A family secret I know has passed on for generations. True commercial privacy that even the grandparents, first and Delia, would have unveiled. The color is very charged; In addition, the sample is very full-bodied to the texture, almost velvety on the surface of the glass. We add to our tasting some observations on the olfactory and taste-olfactory aspect. The wine is presented with particularly fruity hints, but the main characteristics are expressed in the sample tasting phase. The tannin is particularly silky, the gentle and delicate softness opens the way to a long persistence. Spicy notes are felt due to ageing in barriques. But what remains impressed even after waiting for the nasal notes, is its softness: a velvet on the tongue. First and Delia have bequeathed a recipe that represents the winning card of the Cantine cash. The heart and passion for this land is able to emerge with pride behind the darkness of the last events. This wine is the synthesis of excellent feelings towards its roots and the nature that hosts us.
