Tasting Notes: Ruby red in colour. Mineral aAromas with hints of graphite, cocoa and coffee, red fruit and black pepper. A medium structure palate supported by sweet tannins. Excellent acidity supports the length and persistence of the wine.

Ageing/Vinification: Soft destemming in steel tanks where fermentation takes place with controlled temperature never higher than 28 degrees, followed by a period of maceration on the skins for about 10 days. Then the wine is drawn off and leaving only the fine lees with which it starts aging in second-passage French barriques and tonneaux in which the malolactic fermentation takes place. Here they stay for the next 6 \ 12 months, at the end of this period the mass is prepared and placed in steel until bottling.

Vineyard: 25 to 40 year old vineyards are located in the municipality of Venosa, Maschito and Forenza, 450m to 550m above sea level.
