This wine is just bursting with authentic Puglian charm and it’s almost impossible not to smile in its company. The high-toned aromas tease the senses with aromas of sautéed plums, ripe cherries and a squeeze of orange juice swirling with notes of wood polish, sweet tobacco, saddle leather, cigar box spices and fruit-drenched wood. There is such a fantastic flavour balance between the ripe, sunny, savoury southern Italian flavours and the perky, vibrant, mouth-watering red and black fruits.  In terms of weight, it sits somewhere between medium- and full-bodied, its texture favouring fine-grained opulence and charm rather than tannic heft. You are in no doubt as to the wine’s place of origin – the flavours guide you there as if you were following a GPS signal. An outstanding bargain, this comes with our highest recommendation. 14% alc. A blend of Negroamaro (90%) and Malvasia Nera (10%) aged for two years in wooden barrels and then in bottle. Drink now – 2021.
