Wine Description

(From 2010 Vintage) Wine of an intense red color with garnet colored hints, made of Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera. On the nose, fruity sensations of blackberry and black cherry, notes of basil and sweet spices due to the refinement in oak barrels. On the palate, smooth and balanced with a strong but never intrusive tannin. Long lasting finish.

Winemaker's Notes

Blend: 90% Negromaro, 10% Black Malvasia Hand-cultivated vines of Negromaro and Malvasia Nera grow in deep clay soil, which restricts the vigor of the vines and produces the highest quality, most flavor-concentrated fruit. After 12 months of barrel aging, the result is a dry, food-friendly wine with a balance of fruit and herb flavors.
