Deep ruby red colour with violet reflections. This wine has red berry fruit perfumes with a hint of spice. Full-bodied with firm tannins, this wine is well balanced with lots of ripe fruit flavours.

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.

The 2013 harvest in Puglia was marked by one of the coolest spring and summer periods on record. Heavy yields resulted in a slight delay in ripening, but careful vineyard management ensured that the grapes reached full maturation. A late heat spike saw final ripening and colour development in the five days leading up to harvest. The resulting wines are fresh and fruity with excellent acidity, colours and luscious flavours.

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 20ºC. The wine was then transferred to oak barriques for a short time for fining, before bottling.
