A deep ruby red in colour, with lifted perfumes of dark fruits, plums and cherries and a hint of mocha. This wine has soft, ripe tannins and a delicious chocolate-cherry finish
Il Faggio is made for Liberty Wines by Matt Thomson’s colleague, Alana McGettigan, at one of the region’s best co-operatives in the northern part of the Abruzzi. The aim is to capture in the bottle the power and intensity of the grape, together with a lift and freshness which is seldom found in wines from this area.
The name Il Faggio derives from the fabulous beech trees which proliferate in this area, especially in the Abruzzo national park.
