On the nose the wine has scents of red fruit and jam which merge with the sweet and spicy notes of wood.On the palate it shows a great structure and persistence with a pleasant tannic finish.
This wine is obtained from a blend of Negroamaro, Aglianico and Primitivo, whose carefully selected and treated grapes come from terroirs located in the Salento area that are particularly suited for wine.
These grapes are vinified together by using a technique which is popular among wineries, consisting in the extraction of all the potential from the skins (the famous “Salasso” or “Bleeding” technique). This leads to a concentration of the extracted substances of the must and to the extraction of liquid both from the must and from the skins. This process results in a deeper colour, more intense fruity nose scents and a higher concentration of the extracted parts.
The wine obtained is then aged for 6 months in oak (25-50 hl Slavonian oak) where the second fermentation takes place (“Malolactic Fermentation”). The result is a wine of great personality that combines the qualities of structure and concentration to a great drinkability
