Tasting notes
Color: Ruby red color, enriched with garnet reflections.
Nose: Generous perfume, which recalls plums and ripe red fruits.
Palate: This wine has a velvety texture, dry and spicy.

Vineyard
Owned vineyards near Carosino (province of Taranto, Puglia) at almost 200 m.a.s.l. with a high average temperature and very few rainfall during the year. The soils are mainly composed by clay.

Vinification
Vinification is the traditional one for red wines: the must remains in contact with the skins for 8-12 days. It then goes into stainless steel tanks, where it completes its fermentation at controlled temperatures of 22-26 degrees celsious.

Food pairing
Perfect with savoury first courses, lamb and game with rich sauces, hard cheese.
