The 2017 Ampio delle Mortelle is a huge wine, but the natural richness of the year works so well in playing off the strong savory character that is so pronounced here. A rush of dark cherry jam, blackberry, espresso, spice and grilled herbs fleshes out in this dense, structured wine.

Rated 92 by Wine Advocate
A blend of Carmenère, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, Le Mortelle’s 2017 Ampio delle Mortelle shows a soft and luscious quality that is spurred on by the heat and dryness of the vintage. However, the wine is also reined in, and that ripeness is contained especially in terms of the bouquet and the tannins. The Ampio offers ample intensity, but the wine does not go overboard in terms of its extract or concentration. There’s no mistaking this for a warm-climate Tuscan wine, yet you can also appreciate its overall balance. It is released in numbered bottles with a production of just 4,434 bottles.

Region: Tuscany

All over the stunning region of Tuscany in central Italy, you'll see rolling hills covered in green, healthy grapevines. This region is currently Italy's third largest producer of wines, but interestingly wineries here are generally happy with lower yields holding higher quality grapes, believing that they have a responsibility to uphold the excellent reputation of Tuscany, rather than let it slip into 'quantity over quality' wine-making as it did in the mid twentieth century. The region has a difficult soil type to work with, but the excellent climate and generations of expertise more than make up for this problem. Most commonly, Tuscan vintners grow Sangiovese and Vernaccia varietal grapes, although more and more varietals are being planted nowadays in order to produce other high quality wine styles.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
