The late maturation gives the characteristic notes of ripe and dried fruits, such as plums and raisins. The subsequent slight oak aging gives the pleasant notes of chocolate and spices that make this wine harmonic and balanced, pleasant and mature. It is mellow in flavour with a wonderfully powerful body and a long finish.

An elegant red wine from Montepulciano grapes

About this wine from

Apulia, Italy

At the beginning of October the perfect ripeness of the grapes is reached and the winemaking process starts at the vines. The withering process takes place in the vineyard by cutting the petiole of grapes but leaving them on the vine for about 15 days, during this period the 50% of their weight vaporizes. The hand-picked grapes are pressed and the fermentation starts. The skins are left in the must for a long period to extract flavours and the characteristic red colour. Subsequently the wine is left in barrels for about 3 or 4 month.
