Intense deep red color with purple hues. The nose is fruity, revealing aromas of plum, black fruit, and blackberry jam, with a pleasantly spicy sensation of vanilla, tea, and amber. On the palate it is rich and full-bodied, with smooth, integrated tannins.
Italy's beautiful southern wine region of Puglia is a fascinating place for fans of Italian wines. Situated in the very 'heel' of the country, sticking down into the Mediterranean sea, one can hardly imagine a more perfect place for viticulture. Rich, fertile volcanic soils help the grapes take on real character and stunning flavors, and the blazing sunshine of the long summers allows them to reach exceptional levels of ripeness.
