Montecorvo, Costa d' Amalfi, Raffaele Palma 2011

raffaele palma


Being a huge fan of Tintore and after a good friend introduced us to this Puntacroce . We tried a bottle of this and thoroughly enjoyed it, blended from the main 3 grape varieties of the Amalfi coast, its a nice round red that suits most occasions. Smooth and not too alcoholic at 12.5% for a red its a very nice easy drinker.

The vineyard is also special, due to its location and how it stretches vertically up the side of a mounting starting at just 50m above sea level, the grapes have to be transported using cables to get to the winery.

Maiori, Amalfi Coast. 50 meters above sea level to the highest point of 450 meters above sea level.

Varieties
Piedrosso, Aglianco, and Tintore

Description
