Negroamaro Puglia IGT

Made from 100% Negroamaro grown in Salice Salentino (in southern Puglia). The vines are 30-60 years old and enjoy sandy soils and trellised vine training to protect the grapes from sunburn. After harvest, the grapes are pressed and destemmed and cooled to 18 °C (64°F) so the must can ferment at its own pace. After racking in mid- November, the wine remains in concrete until bottling. A lovely ruby red, with aromas of crushed ripe berries, black cherries, and floral notes, interlaced with spice. Full and rich, yet elegant. No oak aging.
