Robust and rustic with dried fruit (fig/prune) flavours accompanied by a creamy bitter-chocolate character, balanced by moderate acidity and smoky oak, with superb length.
Vinification Note :
Mediterranean climate with low rainfall, ranging between 300 and 700 mm annually. Ripening takes place slowly due to the striking contrast between day and night-time temperatures, resulting in a strong development of aromas, richness and concentration.
Soils: For the most part calcareous, though also clay, medium rich and of various compositions (generally low in fertility).
Mainly even countryside at elevations between 40 and 80 metres above sea level.
Training systems: Alberello Pugliese (low densely planted bush-like vines without supporting wires) for local varieties, spur pruned wire frame training for international varieties.
Vine density: Approx. 4,500 per hectare.
Harvest period: From mid September to late October.
