In a Nutshell
Deep and rich - this is a great example of this Puglian classic!
This wine has a deep ruby red colour with violet reflections. On the nose, it has red berry fruit perfumes with a hint of spice. Full-bodied with firm tannins, it is well balanced with lots of ripe fruit flavours.
The vineyards are mostly situated in the communes of Manduria and Sava and are owned by growers with whom Filippo has been working for many years. Production is lower than its potential, which ensures the best quality grapes are selected. The red soils are calcareous clay and rich in iron, minerals and nutrients. 80% of the grapes come from old bush vines and the rest from trained vines that are at least 20 years old.
The grapes were gently pressed and cooled to 10ºC for a maceration period of 10-12 days with regular pumping over. Yeasts were added to start fermentation, which took place under temperature controlled conditions of up to 20ºC. The wine was then transferred to oak barriques for a short time for fining, before bottling.
