This 100% Negroamaro is produced from Apulian sapling plants grown in the countryside of Guagnano. The harvest is carried out after a short drying on the plant and the bunches harvested by hand are selected before proceeding with maceration that lasts less than a week. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel silos and the wine, once all the oenological steps have been completed, rests in barrique for about 3 months.
The nose is rightly perfumed with hints of Mediterranean and an idea of blackberries and myrtle. In the mouth it is enveloping, round, full and persuasive with tapered tannins that arrive softly and persist in the mouth together with an uncommon acidity creating a great appeal to the reassembly. The finish is balanced, long, persistent powerful and warm.
