Vie Cave was created after very careful geological and oenological research intended to release the potential of this new variety in the Italian viticultural scene. Malbéc, a French grape, thrives in Maremma’s volcanic soils, prospering in its new terroir. Vie Cave is balanced and soft and it reflects all the charm of the territory where it is produced. The name of the wine is dedicated to the Etruscan Vie Cave, or excavated roads, passageways excavated vertically in cliffs of tuff that surround the estate’s property.
Vie Cave is an intense ruby red colour. Its nose is captivating and complex: notes of dark ripe fruit, blackberries and blueberries, alternate with spicy hint of vanilla. The palate is balanced and well-defined by silky tannins. Its lengthy, persistent finish is accented with aromas perceived on the nose accompanied by pleasant hints of coffee and dark chocolate.
