Production

From a blend of rigorously selected Negroamaro grapes, with a touch of Malvasia Nera to add complexity and elegance. The grapes are hand harvested from estate vineyards on the ‘Iore’ estate in San Pancrazio Salentino, where deep chalk-clay soils predominate. Here the vines are on average 40 years’ old and trained in the traditional bush system known as ‘alberello’ as well as ‘spalliera’. Grapes are crushed and given 70 hours skin contact; free run juice and soft pressing only. Selected yeasts are used for fermentation in stainless steel vats controlled at 25 – 30 degrees for 5 days. The wine is matured for 8 months in 50 hectolitre Slavonic oak casks and filtered using natural decantation / refrigeration methods before bottling.

Tasting notes

The nose is ripe and openly fruity with hints of liquorice and raisins. The palate has a touch of spice to balance the black fruit and ripe tannins. A wonderful balance of sweet ripeness and bitterness, typical of Negro Amaro, held together by fresh acidity and given added complexity by a touch of spicy oak.

Food match

The perfect accompaniment to Italian tomato pasta dishes. Also great with red meats, such as hot roast beef and grain mustard, or perhaps a bean and lentil casserole.
