Core (pronounced Kor-Ay) is local dialect for “heart”, and the label (once again designed by the daughter of proprietress Silvia Imparato) evokes the love of life, and wine that is the spirit of Montevetrano.  Core is sourced from particular experimental Aglianico plots on the estate in San Cipriano and also from outside growers in the classical Benevento area who are working closely with Riccardo Cotarella. 

Tasting Notes

This deep ruby-red wine displays aromas of red fruits and spices with undertones of licorice, earth, and leather. 

Food Pairing

This wine makes an excellent pairing with roasted lamb, grilled tenderloin, braised ossobuco and ripe cheeses.
