Deep and complex flavours of prunes, black cherry jam, spice and tobacco deliciously weave through the full bodied palate with its velvety texture and long, complex finish of cocoa, coffee and vanilla bean.

Winery

The grapes come from the central area of D.O.P. "Primitivo di Manduria", where they are grown in very old vineyards in San Marzano and Sava. They are planted at a density of 5,000 bush vines per hectare. The soil is mainly red with a fine texture and is generally calcareous with few emerging rocks. The renowned red hue of the soils is due to the presence of iron oxides. The climate is characterised by high temperatures all year round, very little rainfall and a wide diurnal temperature range, which has a positive influence on the quality of the grapes, concentrating the flavours in the berries. The harvest takes place during the second half of September.
