Tasting Note:

Full bodied with ripe sweet fruit and glycerol. Plusher than the Vecchie Vigne with an attractive silkiness – griotte, kirsch, plum red berries and spices with ceps and wild mushroom notes on the finish. Fornace is a single plot in the higher part of the Castelnuovo dell’Abate zone, at 400 metres above sea level. The soils here have more clay in them than the Vecchie Vigne, resulting in rounder more powerful style of wine. Aged for 36 months in large Slavonian oak casks.
