Description Sub Region Producer Notes
Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “The Riserva is produced only in truly extraordinary growing seasons and that has only happened two times for the Inferno Sesto Canto, and that is 2009 and 2013. This is essentially a new wine for Ar. Pe. Pe. sourced from 50-year-old vines at 450 meters altitude within a subplot of Inferno. The wine undergoes an extraordinarily long maceration of 70 days (yes, seventy). And from the all-star line-up we tasted, this was the discreet wine with quiet class, precision, depth, and a slow and persistent build. There are nuances of cherry, raspberries, dried fruit, lilac, herbs, baked earth, and salinity. It is subtle but powerful, you have to watch for the flavors to build, but it keeps you coming back for more. The wine needs aeration to be enjoyed today. With its coiled core you can expect amazing things to come. Just 500 cases produced.”
