Area: Puglia/ Apulia (Salento)
Grapes: Red grapes from Apulia
Production: Area Apulia, Salento
Vinification: The grapes are grown in the vineyard of Tenute Masso Antico in accordance with organic farming methods and harvested by hand. After vinification, the wine is aged with a double passage in cocciopesto amphorae and in French and American oak barrels. The cocciopesto amphorae, a special mixture of crushed earthenware aggregates, fibres, stone fragments, sand, cement binder and water, guarantee to the wine a controlled microoxygenation and the result is a fully developed wine with peculiar and genuine flavours.
Description: An intense ruby red colour, with scents of vanilla and chocolate, whisky and coffee. On the palate it is full-bodied and enveloping but at the same time harmonious.
Food pairings: Goes perfectly with red meat and game cooked on the grill or in stews and with mature cheeses.
