Best Italian wines bring to mind Castello Monte Vibiano Vecchio L'Andrea. This 2003 vintage Italian wine is produced with a blend of the best Italian Sangiovese, Sagrantino, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah grapes. This is an Italian wine that imparts great intensity with a wide range of aromas including red fruit, dried mint leaf, root beer and white truffle. It boasts a beautiful color, firm tannins and smokey flavors in the mouth. The 2003 is considered one of the best vintages for this collectible wine.
Vecchio is located in the Italian pastoral setting of Umbria, between Florence and Rome. Gently rolling hills and a sunny, mild climate create the best and ideal setting for both vineyards and olive groves. Owner Lorenzo Fasola-Bologna has overhauled both his vineyards and his winery to produce complex and seductive wines. Lorenzo’s family has produced and bottled wine on his family’s estate for countless generations. After making a substantial investment in technology, expert consultants, and varietals, Lorenzo is taking winemaking, as well as his estate olive oil production, to a new level. He won’t stop until his Castello Monte Vibiano wines are a household name.
