2015 Wrath Ex Dolio Falanghina

Full, lush flavors of citrus, herbs, and apricot are beautifully balanced with bright acidity.  This wine combines modern-day winemaking with ancient Roman techniques so it is unfiltered and unfined to retain as much flavor and depth as possible.                                                                                              

Since this wine is not filtered or fined, it is common to see some sediment at the base of the cork and in the wine (especially after refrigeration). This phenomenon in no way influences the taste or quality of the wine.

Wrath owner, Michael Thomas, is an archaeologist with two excavations in Italy.  The southern dig outside Pompeii has uncovered the first known wine importing/exporting business that was operating at the time of the Vesuvius explosion.  This wine combines known Roman winemaking techniques with modern day protocols.  The 2015 Ex Dolio Falanghina comes from the two rows of this ancient Campanian grape planted on our estate vineyard. It is fermented on the skins in the dolium (the modern version of an ancient clay fermenting vessel) until dry.  Then racked off and placed back into the dolium for 6 months of aging.  It is left naturally unfiltered and unfined before bottling.  The resulting wine has a distinctive old world character with a seamless blend of rich apricot, bright acidity and citrus undertones. Its acidity will make a wonderful pairing with any grilled or roasted fish, but also allow it to stand up to richer fish preparations such as stewed octopus or even bouillabaisse.
