How it's made

Produced from the local Primitivo variety cultivated in the Salento peninsula of the Puglia region, southern Italy. Grapes are sourced from the selected vineyards between 20 and 60 years old and hand harvested in early September. Fermentation took place at 82-86F with daily pumping over and 10 days contact with the skins. After malolactic fermentation the wine was matured for six months in large Slavonian oak casks before bottling.

Tasting Notes

A warm, richly flavored red with aromas of plums, dried fruits and brown spices. On the palate it's generous with good concentration of ripe plum and black cherry fruit and hints of dried figs, liquorice and dark chocolate. All balanced by fresh acidity.
