WE ARE: Puglia
WE CHOOSE: Primitivo,Negroamaro,Nero di Troia,Aglianico,Susumaniello e Malvasia Nera.
WE LOVE: In Red soaking on the skins . The grapes are harvested between the end of the August and September . The different varieties are fermented separately in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature for 12-16 days . The second fermentation and the aging in wood also takes place in French oak barrels of 225 liters new . When the wine has reached the maximum of its potential, the final blend is assembled. Ageing in the bottle: Almost 6 months.
TASTE IT: This outstanding red wine is a quite recent expression of Puglia’s viticultural potential in relation to red wines. Modern, well-balanced and full-bodied wine. It is deep, dark purple in colour with a bouquet of ripe fruit, such as blackcurrants and blackberries, with a hint of toasted oak. It is smooth on the palate, with a great concentration of excellent fruit, nicely balanced with delicate, soft tannins. The structure and complexity in the mouth are outstanding, tempered by excellent tannic extracts. Thishigh-profile blend has evident Mediterranean characteristics and a sunny nature. Its grace and delicacy mean that it can be drunk while young, yet it also has a remarkable ageing capacity.
DRINK IT: 16°-18°C.
MACTH IT: Roasts, braised meats, fine game and mature cheese.
