Ruby red with purple hues. This wine is intense with notes of black berries (blackcurrants and berries). It is medium bodied, velvety, with good balance. It has savoury notes on the long, fresh finish.

The vineyards are mostly situated in the communes of Manduria and Sava and are owned by growers with whom Filippo has been working for many years. Production is lower than its potential, which ensures the best quality grapes are selected. The red soils are calcerous clay and rich in iron, minerals and nutrients. 80% of the grapes come from old bush vines and the rest from trained vines that are at least 20 years old.

Vintage 2012 will be remembered for a lack of rain (30% less than the previous year) and constant high temperatures. Consequently, disease was rare, a good sugar/acid balance was attained during ripening and a high potential alcohol was achieved. As a result, the fruit ripened early and so harvest was three to four weeks earlier than usual. Wines are showing good structure with fine acidity and elevated aromatics.

The grapes were gently pressed and cooled to 10ºC for a maceration period of 10-12 days with regular pumping over. Yeasts were added to start fermentation, which took place under temperature controlled conditions of up to 20 ºC. The wine was then transferred to oak barriques for a short time for fining, before bottling.
