From a blend of rigorously selected Negroamaro grapes, with a touch of Malvasia Nera to add complexity and elegance. The grapes are hand harvested from estate vineyards on the 'Iore' estate in San Pancrazio Salentino, where deep chalk-clay soils predominate. Here the vines are on average 40 years' old and trained in the traditional bush system known as 'alberello' as well as 'spalliera'.

The palate has a touch of spice to balance the black fruit and ripe tannins. A wonderful balance of sweet ripeness and bitterness, typical of Negroamaro, held together by fresh acidity and given added complexity by a touch of spicy oak. The perfect accompaniment to Italian tomato pasta dishes. Also great with red meats, such as hot roast beef and grain mustard, or perhaps a bean and lentil casserole.
