“His hands are dirty with earth this south, his face full of sulfur, the soul drunk with must; this south, the blackened stones and the fiery rows; ten years for millennia of history; this south.”

DieciAnni is the name that identifies these particularly valuable labels; to make this line the winery took ten years in experimentation and tasting: hence the name of these extraordinary wines.

Diecianni is produced in Guagnano. The harvest is done manually in the second decade of September.

Already in the destemming-crushing phase, the bunches of negroamaro and malvasia nera, the latter present in modest quantities in our vineyards as it was used in ancient times, are “married”: the involvement is absolute. The long maceration to which they are subjected together, combined with a passage in French barriques for 6 months, gives this wine a distinct personality.

Ready just on the market with an interesting evolution in the following five / six years.
