Inama is a family who has been producing wine for more than forty years as our only activity. "Now, at our third generation, we have a well-defined project: to produce different wines whose only aim is to represent our vision of the land, despite the styles and trends of the moment. Our agricultural system is organic because we think it yields better fruit, but we do not include this on our label.We believe in wine that generates emotions, preferably at “blind tasting” and, in order to do this, we have developed our own

know-how without consulting experts and wine gurus. We believe in everyday living and oenological minimalism, respecting the winemaking good practices that have lain the foundations

of modern wine."

Più’ means ‘more’ in Italian and there’s more than just Carmenere in this typical blend from the Colli Berici, a line of gently rolling volcanic hills in Italy’s north-east. Merlot is a civilising influence, the plumy accent and refined tannins marry well with a touch of French oak. The iron-rich clay soil over a limestone base is perfect for Bordeaux varieties and Carmenere, introduced in the 19th century, suffered from amnesia for decades. Cabernet Franc it most definitely is not – the soy sauce, cocoa and grainy tannins ought to have been unmistakeable.
