Wine flows through the historical veins of every corner of Italy. We chose a compass rose for our label to send an invitation to experience in one bottle four different grape varietals, each typical expression of a distinct Italian region: Veneto, Abruzzo, Puglia and Sicily. In many ways, Memoro is an uncharted territory for us: it is the first time when Piccini takes up the challenge of creating a wine as an Italian icon. The challenge was to create a wine that would not only taste Italian beyond any doubt, but would feel Italian. The project is the fruit of a long research and experimentation, testing and blending from all Italy. Memoro truly emerged as a cuvee wine, a blend of not only different grapes of different origins in Italy, but also of different vintages: the 12 months oaked casked Montepulciano from Abruzzo, the solar Nero d'Avola from Sicily, the colder climate (Veneto) Merlot and the passito Primitivo wine from Puglia. The final blend was the one that called its one name: Memoro, Latin for "remember" Italia. In the fullest sense, Memoro Italia is born from our Family's Italian pride. A warm, modern style with notes of dark cherries, figs and coffee in a delicate oak frame. Generous on the palate, revealing a bright fruity core. Concentrated, exposing great structure, yet harmonious and soft. Long, dense finish.

With no vintage or appellation other than Italy, this cheerful blend of Primitivo, Montepulciano, Nero d'Avola and Merlot represents a blend that's sourced from sites across southern Italy. The nose shows jammy raspberry aromas while the close is soft and chewy.
