The grapes are trained as bush vines (Alberello in Italian) which has ancient origins and is typical of the mediterranean area of Italy. It was developed to compensate the lack of water and the very hot climate. The now very rare Alberello system represents a very important part of the cultural and oenological heritage of Apulia. The rigorous hand-picking is followed by a meticulous selection of the destemmed grapes. The fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature at 16-18°C. Part of the wine ages in stainless teel tanks and other part in big oak barrels. The blend undergoes a final aging in bottle for 3 months.


Dark red color with purple hints. Complex bouquet with red fruits aroma and spicy notes. In the mouth it is warm and intense. Ideal with first dishes, grilled meat and aged cheeses.
