La Valentina
Binomio is the brainchild of two old friends: Stefano Inama from Azienda Agricola Inama in the Veneto and Sabatino Di Properzio from Fattoria la Valentina. The idea was simple and born from their conviction that Montepulciano is a native Italian grape of extraordinary potential. High yields and sloppy vinification had robbed it of character in much the same
way as Garganega’s talents had been squandered in Soave. The Binomio vineyard – a stunning plot of old vine Montepulciano planted exclusively with the low-yielding ‘ Africa ‘ clone in 1971 – was purchased in 1999.
Deep dense intense ruby red colour, with a purple rim and obvious viscosity.
Intense nose with ripe black berry, cassis, wild strawberry and spices.
Dry but with high alcohol, acidity and ripe tannins, pronounced fruit and great length.
