The grapes come from selected vineyards in the Salento region, harvested at the beginning of October, to get a level of maturation such to have a high sugar level and good alcohol content. After the accurate hand harvest, grapes are pressed and the fermentation starts; the skins are left in the must for a long period to extract flavours and the characteristic thick deep red colour.
The good late maturation gives the characteristic notes of ripe and dried fruits, such as plums and raisins. The slight oak aging gives the pleasant notes of chocolate and spices that make this wine harmonic and balanced, pleasant and mature.
