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.
