A rich swirl of Chenin characters with gentle ripe apple aromas, honeyed aromatics and delicious greengage and citrus lemon acidity on the long finish. The terrifically generous mouthfeel comes from the long, slow wild yeast fermentation.<

A superb full-bodied wine which is made from the Primitivo grape variety which have been dried slightly using " il giro del picciolo" technique where the stems of the grape bunches are twisted so that they no longer receive nourishment. They are left for about 12 days and in that time they loose 25-30% of their weight, which concentrates the juice and natural sweetness of the grapes.
Organic grapes are harvested by hand from low yielding vines near Sava in Salento, south of Apulia.
Full-bodied and smooth it has a nose of ripe cherries and forest fruits with a touch of spice and chocolate notes. Dried fruits on the palate with autumns fruits, damson, red plums followed by a smooth lingering finish hints of sweet fruits and spice.
