Following the overture of I-1, we proudly offer the second act of Locations, Italia. With over 2000 indigenous grape varieties to select and compose a blend, an exhaustive search was undertaken to pay homage to this historic region. Maintaining the integrity of the land was paramount while simultaneously considering the result of a dynamic and innovative wine. Powerful and rich fruit from Puglia (Torricella and Manduria) serves as the base with a lively vein of acidity from Barbera (Alba) that stabilizes things in just the right way.

A blend of Negroamaro and Nero d’Avola from the Southern region of Puglia
combined with Barbera from Piemonte in the North.

Barrel aged ten months before release.
