Core, from the award winning winery of Silvia Imparato
Core (pronounced Kor-Ay) is local dialect for “heart”, and the label designed by the daughter of owner Silvia Imparato evokes the love of life, and wine that is the spirit of Montevetrano. Core is sourced from particular experimental Aglianico plots on the estate in San Cipriano and also from outside growers in Benevento working closely with Riccardo Cotarella.
