100% Primitivo from low yielding vineyards in Puglia with a quarter aged in oak for 12 months.
A portion of the grapes are dried (appassimento) for a brief period to concentrate the aromas and rich fruit flavours in the wine, so on the palate there are flavours of dried fruits as well as black fruits.
Complex bouquet reminiscent of cherries, raspberries and redcurrants. The partial oak ageing adds a pleasant roasted and spicy aroma and makes this full-bodied and supple wine perfect with roasted red meats and mature cheeses.
