The 2012 Vittoria Pithos Rosso sees a similar vinification and regime as the Pithos Bianco: Nero d’Avola (60%) and Frappato (40%) grapes macerate on their skins in clay amphorae for seven months. The wine never sees contact with wood. Although you feel some dusty, terracotta-like notes in the Bianco, those aromas are presented with a greater degree of intensity here. Wet earth, pottery clay, dried cherry, pressed blue flowers, forest floor and button mushroom are some of the delicate nuances that lift gracefully from the bouquet. In the mouth, the wine shows a solid sense of structure that is enhanced by fleshy dark fruit and balanced acidity. The wine is in its infancy and needs a few more years before it finds focus and sharpness. Hold off drinking for a few more years. Drink 2016-2022.
