The vineyards belonging to this estate are superb; low-trained and planted on the volcanic soils of the slopes of Mount Vulture at altitudes of up to 800 metres above sea level. The area is one of Italy’s most remote and poorest. It is isolated and undeveloped and according to consultant winemaker Alberto Antonini, is like stepping back a few centuries in time.
Deep red in colour, this wine displays hints of blackberry and blackcurrants mixed with spicy, balsamic notes on the nose. It has great structure on the palate and good length on the finish.
