Product Description

  • Red Italian Wine
  • "Memŏro Italia", Latin for Remember Italy, was born as a cuvée wine from our family's Italian pride and created as a tribute to our country's exceptional wine-making legacy and love of life.
  • Plenty of rich black-cherry flavour, with coffee and tobacco on the nose and hints of dried figs and prunes. Reminiscent of Port but with a dry, complex palate supported by elegant structure and perfectly integrated tannins, the powerful ripe fruit is delightfully balanced.
  • Wine flows through the historical veins of every corner of Italy. Our family has been part of the Italian wine history for IV generations, since 1882. With our roots deep into the territory of Tuscany, it is the very first time when we take up the challenge to create a wine that would not only taste Italian, but feel Italian. This is why I consider that Memŏro is uncharted territory for us, an idea reflected by the rose compass on the label: an Italian cuvee wine born from 4 corners of Italy. An unique project that is not only a tribute to the great Italian culture of which we are part, but born from our Family's Italian pride. Celebrating 150 Years of Italy.

Vinification Details

  • Memŏro truly emerged as a cuvee wine, a blend of not only different grapes of different origins in Italy, but also of different vintages: the 12 months oaked casked Montepulciano from Abruzzo, the solar Nero d'Avola from Sicily, the colder climate (Veneto) merlot and the passito Primitivo wine from Puglia. The final blend was the one that called its own name : Memŏro , Latin for “remember” Italia. In the fullest sense, Memŏro Italia is born from our Family's Italian pride.

History

  • In many ways, Memŏro is an uncharted territory for us: it is the first time when Piccini takes up the challenge of creating a wine as an Italian icon. The challenge was to create a wine that would not only taste Italian beyond any doubt, but would feel Italian. The project is the fruit of a long research and experimentation, testing and blending from all Italy.

Regional Information

  • Wine flows through the historical veins of every corner of Italy. We chose a compass rose for our label to send an invitation to experience in one bottle four different grape varietals, each typical expression of a distinct Italian region: Veneto, Abruzzo, Puglia and Sicily.
