Mitolo Angela 2013 (95 JH)
“Destemmed and crushed, matured in mainly French oak (10% new, 90% 1 and 2yo) for 18 months. Very well made, speaking with equal clarity of its region and variety; plum and black cherry fruits slide fluidly across the palate, oak a measured companion.”
The Lopresti Family growers have provided fruit for Mitolo from the very beginning. Sourced from Sandra’s Block, matriarch of the Lopresti family, this wine is a tribute to Frank Mitolo’s mother, Angela, matriarch of the Mitolo family.
