“It’s radiant force of fruit and flower emerges in a unique nose with notes of blackberry, violet, and black cherry that daze the nostrils…With a taste, balanced in acid, softness and tannins, of a suppleness and force that is simply phenomenal…An absolute masterwork of nature, technique, humanity and pure passion.” 99 Points – Luca Maroni
Deep red in colour, with garnet tones. Intense aromas of cherries, prunes, ripe blackcurrant, tobacco and a final toasted note. This wine is full-bodied, soft and rich in tannin with a persistent, long finish showing spicy notes of vanilla and chocolate.
Valentino Sciotti describes this wine as ‘a true taste of southern Italy’. Comprising Montepulciano and Sangiovese from Abruzzi and Primitivo, Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera from southern Puglia, the varieties are aged separately before blending to create a rich, powerful yet eminently drinkable wine.
The wine itself expresses tremendous depth of colour and a powerful, intense nose with perfumes of dark plums, blackberries and a touch of vanilla, cinnamon and mixed spice from the new oak. On the palate, it‘s warm and robust, with chocolate mocha flavours tightly knit with the dark, plummy fruit.
