About the Wine:
"The vineyard is located in Borgo Tressanti in the geographical district called Daunia or Agro di Cerignola, in the municipality of Cerignola. Soil: it is sandy, and the training system is the spurred cordon. The vineyard is 12 years old. The planting layout includes 4,000 vines per hectare, while the yield per hectare is 90 quintals. Proximity to the sea brings significant benefits, both for the type of sandy and extremely mineral soil, and for the aeration of the bunches kissed by sea breezes, so as to make the environment naturally hostile to the presence of pests. The harvest, carried out in the early hours of the morning, begins at the end of September. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel containers, where it also carries out malolactic fermentation and is aged for 6 months. After 3 months of bottle arrives on the market."
"Very intense red and purple color. The nose is both classic and original. It releases aromas of dark berries, such as dead and blueberry, and ripe red figs. Also the prickly pear pulp and generically Mediterranean scrub. Some spices are also added, and certainly among the most prominent, we have the cloves and black pepper. On the palate it is immediate and conspicuous. Substantially balanced with poly alcohols on one side and tannins on the other. Very pleasant and original as a whole. An Apulian red not leaning on softness, but on the contrary well upright. Once swallowed it releases aromas of ripe red fruit and spices. Good persistence. This Apulian wine from Podere 29 accompanies game meat dishes, mixed grills of beef, pork and chicken. Also noteworthy with veal roasts and braised beef. Effective even with tasty first courses."
Drink With: Meat dishes, matured cheeses and dried hams
