2010 Vintage
Region: IGT Puglia
Grape variety: 100% Nero di Troia

Vines: Trained using the Guyot method.

Vinification: The grapes are harvested in the last week of October and after de-stemming and crushing, the grapes are left to macerate in steel tanks for 10-12 days. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 25°C. By carefully breaking up the cap of skin and performing delestage ("rack and return") during maceration, it is possible to perfectly extract all the natural aromas and colours.

Aging: After alcoholic fermentation, the wine is set aside to age in steel tanks for 8 months, followed by an additional 12 months in 30 hectolitre oak casks.

Tasting Notes: This wine is a characteristic and quintessential expression of the terroir, deep ruby red colour with violet nuances and an intense and elegant bouquet of ripe fruit, spices and a pleasantly toasted taste. On the palate, the wine is soft with an elegant freshness and tannic edge.
