Production and maturation: The grapes are manually harvested in Puglia during the second decade of September, when the berries are already in a light overripe phase. The reason is to grant the production of a deep red color wine, rich in alcohol with ripe and sweet tannins and notes of cherry liqueur. Vinification takes place in wooden and stainless steel fermenters of small capacity (10-50-100 hl) at controlled temperatures of 25-28 C° with 7-10 days skin contact. After the malolactic
fermentation the wine matures for 6 months in 225 liter barriques made by a special selection of French and American oak and long toasted, so to release notes of white and dark chocolate into the wine. Only light filtration before bottling. May be stored for 3-4 years.
