Item Description

Vivino 4.2

Deep ruby red. Layers of cherry, strawberry with hints violets and grilled herbs. Medium body and fresh with red fruits and mineral notes on the palate.

The grapes are sourced from two vineyards in the communes of Forenza and Maschito in the Vulture DOC. In late September and early October, the grapes are hand harvested. Fermentation takes place in steel tanks with indigenous yeast at an average temperature of 28 C or 82.4 F. The grapes macerate for ten days, and then the wine is racked off into used barriques, and tonneaux where malolactic fermentation occurs. The wine is then aged for 12 months before aging for an additional 18 months in bottle. Total production is 6,500 bottles.

IGNI is a collaboration between two of the most recognized Italian-centric sommeliers in the U.S.: Shelley Lindgren, Wine Director of A16 restaurant in San Francisco and Oakland and Jeffrey Porter, Beverage Director of B & B Hospitality. Having been friends for over 15 years, both have championed lesser-known wines throughout the Italian peninsula. Last year over a bottle of wine they decided to start a project to bring people closer to the wine regions located on volcanic soils with growers that farm and produce balanced wines. Their first wine IGNI, hails from the Picini family, one of the best growers of the Vulture in the region of Basilicata. Together the Picini family, Shelley, and Jeff worked on a blend of two of the estates most prized vineyards to produce a wine that they all felt best transmitted the terroir of Vulture and the future of this appellation.
