This extraordinary wine has the power to remain engraved in the memory as much as the “pietrefinite”, or boundary stones, have remained for centuries where our ancestors had placed them in order to bound the borders of their vineyards. Ruby-red wine with deep red waves. Hints of black cherry and liquorice in the nose. Long final of cocoa and almond stuffed figs in the mouth.

Maruggio / Sava – The grapes are hand-picked at the beginning of September; then a small winery in Manduria work on the grapes for us.
The grapes are crushed and de-stemmed softly. The maceration lasts about two weeks. The resulting wine ages for 12 months in stainless steel tanks and then in some small French oak barrels.
The wine is ready after 6 months of bottle ageing and has a life of not less than fifteen/twenty years.
18° C – Braised boar; Fresh and marbled goat’s milk cheese; Pugliese canestrato cheese.
