2013 Torre Testa Salento IGT

Case of 12 bottles

Varietals: 100% Susumaniello (grapes are racked and dried for 2-3 weeks before pressing)

Vinification/Ageing: Fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Aged about 1 year in French barrique, bottle aged for a minimum of 12 months

Alcohol: 16%

Description: The colour is dark garnet red with violet reflections. On the nose the wine is elegant and complex with notes of black cherries and plums in brandy, blackcurrant and blackberry jam, hints of chocolate, juniper, nutmeg, liquorice, cinnamon and ink. On the palate, it's classy and harmonious, intense with a long finish, the result of strong and fragrant fruit, powerful acidity and fine grained tannins. 

Pairings: Try with papardelle alla Bolognese, gnocchi in lamb sauce, pennein boar sauce, braised lamb shank, stewed suckling pig with potatoes. Perfect with the Canestrato Pugliese DOP cheese.
