100% Ottavianello from Alto Salento, 70m above sea level, grown on Limestone and clay above volcanic tuft soils. The grapes are hand harvested and macerated with the skins for 15 days followed by a 12 month period of aging in french oak barriques. In the glass it is a brilliant ruby red color. The nose is complex and rich with aromas of red cherries, black pepper, violets, roses, cocoa and hints of peppermint.
On the palate it is a well balanced wine that has flavors of fresh red cherries, blood orange and raspberries along with soft supple tannins and brisk acidity. You can enjoy this wine with Salmon, Other Fatty Fish,
Salumi, Soft Cheese and Chicken Dishes. This fabulous wine awarded with the Super Tre Stelle (3 stars) of Luigi Veronelli. The Super Three Stars are attributed to wines that have obtained a judgment equal or superior to 94/100 points.

Reviewer: Leslie Craver from Freemont, CA United States  
Ottavianello has become my favorite summertime red wine. Extremely flavorful loaded with bright fruit flavors, floral notes, soft tannins, good acidity and a long finish.
