If you’re a fan of rich, dark Corsiero, stand by for the turbo charged Purosangue (‘thoroughbred’) edition. It’s deeper and more powerful – the Ferrari of the original. Top winemaker Andrea Bernardini is behind this big, oak matured, spicy fruit red.
Like the much adored so-called ‘standard’ Corsiero, this punchy rich red is full of the dark spicy cherry fruit of Nero di Troia. It’s a terrific southern Italian grape, deeply coloured and full of dense red fruit, and with excellent structure. However, in our ‘riserva’ edition – our thoroughbred charger, Purosangue (pron. poo-roo-sang-way) – the grapes are from particularly old vines to lend even more intensity of flavour. Leading winemaker Andrea Bernardini made a rigorous selection of the grapes, then oak aged the wine in barrel to create this sleek, aristocratic red that'll warm you with its velvety texture, rich spice and dense black fruit. Partner with substantial dishes – well seasoned pork and butter bean casserole or hearty pasta.
"Even better than the original. Lovely rich, smooth wine. Very drinkable"
