The Lapideus is a new wine for the Chicago market as the 2015 is only the second vintage for the winery. The 2015 Lapideus is concentrated and saline with delicious, bitter-skin fruit, showing more pronounced acidity than Bea’s Santa Chiara cuvee. A 22-day maceration contributes notes of stinging nettles and other herbs on the palate along with a prominent taste of hazelnuts on a long finish. It was bottled in May 2019 without fining or filtration and a minimal addition of sulfites.
