Notes from the Winemaker:

WINERY
Maceration varies from 18 to 21 days, depending on the vintage, with periodic pumping over and delestage. Following fermentation and malolactic fermentation, the wines ages, part in stainless steel and part in cement.

WINE
The 2012 Malandrino represents a turning point at Cataldi Madonna. The goal of this shift is a great wine uncontaminated by oak. The production of this Malandrino is centered around the winery’s historic cement tanks, which have been carefully restored. The result is a sharp and crisp Malandrino which initially shows notes of sour cherry that evolved to ripe, black cherry. On the palate, this wine is quite fresh and dangerously easy to drink while retaining its complexity and flavor. A wine for every meal, Malandrino effortlessly pairs with the Abruzzese cuisine.

Ratings & Reviews

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (2010 Vintage):
"Bright purple-ruby. Red cherry, anise and flowers on the nose. Bright and vinous, with dark berry and bitter cherry flavors picking up musky herbs with air. Finishes on a sweet note of cherry-cola, with dusty tannins adding grip. This is currently a little raw, so I'd cellar it for a year." - Ian D'Agata (Mar/Apr 13)

Wine Spectator (2010 Vintage):
"A medium-bodied, plum-tinged red, with hints of earth, cedar and herbs leading to a trim finish. Drink now. 1,000 cases imported." – NW (Web Only - 2013)
