A Hearty Red Wine from Fattoria Coroncino


I randomly grabbed this wine from Fattoria Coroncino off a rack at MacArthur Beverages.  With no prior knowledge about this wine I pulled the cork and poured it into our glasses.  The nose revealed dried fruit aromas which were reinforced on the palate immediately confirming this wine was fermented with some dried fruit.  Sure enough, it is a passito.  Fattoria Coroncino was founded by Lucio Canestrari and his wife Fiorella De Nardo in 1981.  They produce wine from 17.5 hectares of vines spread over three vineyards.  These vineyards are located between 250 and 400 meters in elevation.  They farm and produce wine using a common sense approach.  They started grassing their vineyards in 1983, started using organic methods to control diseases and pests, and stopped using fertilizer in 1995.  They harvest the fruit by hand. This is certainly an interesting wine for a cold fall evening.  This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

2007 Fattoria Coroncino, Ganzerello,  Marche – $17
Imported by Williams Corner Wines.  This wine is a blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Syrah produced in a passito style.  Alcohol 16%.  The nose is heady with some dried fruit and jammy, red fruit with air.  In the mouth there are red fruit and prune flavors, ripe tannins, and a little warmth.  With air there is dense dried red fruit, fine+ wood tannins which coat the teeth and lips, and warmth in the throat during the aftertaste.  This needs a few years to come together.  ** 2014-2019.
