Wine made with grapes produced in the countryside of Copertino
Negroamaro 70%, Montepulciano 30%
Apulian "Alberello"/spur cordon
Negroamaro grapes, after a natural drying in the plant, are carefully selected and harvested together with Montepulciano. After that, they are crushed and de-stemmed. The must undergoes the alcoholic fermentation with maceration for at least 20 days at a controlled temperature (26-28°C).
12 mesi in vasche di cemento, 12 mesi di tonneau, 12 mesi di bottiglia
The colour is thick ruby red with purple reflections. On the nose it is ample with notes of mace, ginger and black pepper followed by blackberry, cherry and nuances of tabacco leaf, coffee and balsamic scents. The sip is vigorous with energetic and well-integrated tannins, long persistence closes with a reference to mentholated tabacco.
It is ideal with stewed game and grilled meats.
