Sangiovese 70% – Merlot 30%
Canosa di Puglia and other neighbouring districts
The Sangiovese grapes are harvested when they are perfectly ripe, whereas the Merlot are harvested a little bit after their ripening. Fermentation on skins for about 15 days, with pumping overs every 4 hours, draining off, fining: 4-7 months in new barriques (30% French and 70% American).
Ruby red colour, intense and complex aroma, ripe fruit, chocolate and jam, with spicy notes from wood. Quite tannic and well balanced. Ready to drink, but its structure allows the wine to be aged for 4/5 years
