#69 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2014
“A burly, brambly red, underscored by tarry smoke and underbrush notes, offering flavors of blackberry coulis, herb-marinated black olive, grilled mushroom and ground spice. This shows muscle that recommends it to short-term cellaring, made accessible by integration and balance. Drink now through 2024.”
by Wine Spectator, AN, 2014.
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.
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 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.
Perfect with savoury first courses, lamb and game with rich sauces, hard cheese.
