Alcohol/vol 13.5%
Red intense wine made with Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera di Lecce. The nose has fruity hints of plum and spiced of vanilla. In the mouth it is smooth, velvety and nicely tannic. Very good with roasted meat and cheeses.

Light aromas of peppery spice, violet and cranberry start off this Negroamaro. There's a softness to the feel at first, yet bright acidity quickly brightens up the palate and propels along the flavors of tart red berries. Light tannins and ripe cherry show good resolve on the finish.

Round and easy-drinking, this creamy red is light- to medium-bodied, with hints of black cherry coulis, licorice and smoke. Drink now.
