Langhe DOC Rosso “4 Amis” by Elio Filippino comes from Piedmont’s dialect meaning “4 Friends”. This wine is a joyous reference to four friends animating a beautiful meal.

Four grape varietals including, Cabernet Sauvignon, plus a blend of Barbera, Nebbiolo from Barbaresco and Syrah, create a unique and great blend. Its bouquet is fruity with notes of capsicums, offering a warm, intense and persistent taste. Ideal serving temperature is 18°-20°C. Also very good at 16°-17°C. To fully appreciate the ample aromas serve the wine in large bowled crystal stemware, swirling the wine around the glass before enjoying it.

This Italian red is perfect for a sophisticated dining table. It is excellent with savoury pasta dishes, roasted meats and venison, or typically aged cheeses. This red wine is a statement to the harmony and balance of different local varietals, coming together like four old friends, to create a great wine.

Vinification: After de-stalking and delicately pressing the grapes, the obtained limpid must is fermented in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of 26°-30°C. for 8-10 days. After fermenting each grape individually, the wines are assembled and start the ageing process in 225 and 500-litre oak barriques for about 12-15 months. Finally, it is bottled and left to mature for an additional 6 months, capturing all the notes distinctive of this wine.
