Still red wine
The Salento IGT production area, Apulia region,
Good exposure and ventilation. Mainly clayey soils, but there are also fine calcareous soils with limited thickness and good drainage or red, pebbly soils rich in minerals.
Normally between the end of September and the beginning of October, after a period of drying on the vine.
Fermentation at controlled temperature in steel tanks and racking. The wine rests and matures exclusively in steel for a short period before bottling. Following the partial drying of
the grapes, the maximum yield of grapes in wine is never more than 50%.
Intense ruby red with garnet hints.
Intense aroma with notes of ripe red fruit and cooked plum. Ethereal notes of liquorice, chocolate and in the finish a sweet spiciness of nutmeg and vanilla.
Full-bodied and powerful in the mouth, with ripe and soft tannins, balanced, with a pleasant bitterish finish with hints of hazelnut.
Perfect with red meats, game, mature cheeses. Due to its characteristics, however, it can also be appreciated without special pairings, as a meditation wine.
