Tasting Notes

An aromatic expression of black berries, with herbs and spices in the background. Lively and charming attack, followed by notes of blackberries and blueberries, herbs and liquorice, with lovely tannins.

Italy

Puglia

Puglia is the "boot" of Italy. This wine region is located in the far southern-east of the country. The region is known for its production of fruit forward red wines. Primitivo and Negroamaro are the two most common grape variety in the area. This red-dominated wine region also produces great dessert wines.

Cantina Sampietrana

Warm Mediterranean climate

Cantina Sampietrana

The soils in Puglia are influenced by their location at the extreme end of Italy. Here subsoils are based on Mesozoic limestone, marl, and residual deposits giving to the vines a terrific start. The Salento, and the Murge (a calcareous plateau) represent the top sites of the region where the soil is basically limestone, with a mixture of iron oxide that gives that red colour.
