Grapes come from selected vineyards in the Salento region, harvested at the beginning of October to get a level of maturation in order to reach higher sugar content to provide good alcohol content. The late maturation of this wine provides characteristic notes of ripe and dried fruits, such as plums and raisins. Slight oak aging adds notes of chocolate and spices that make this wine harmonic, balanced, pleasant and mature. Great with roast beef served alongside Yorkshire pudding and gravy, wild boar or deer. Excellent with mature, savoury hard cheeses.
