Ottavianello is widely planted throughout the
region of Puglia and has only recently begun to be made into a monovarietal
wine with very good results.
Ottavianello wines appear a brilliant ruby red color in the glass. They
tend to have rich and complex noses with aromas of red cherries, cocoa,
violets, roses and hints of peppermint, black pepper and spice. On the palate the wines are always well balanced with a wide range of flavors such
as fresh black cherries, raspberries, hazelnuts, blood orange, currants and
cooking spices along with soft supple tannins and brisk acidity.
