Winemaker's Notes

Blend: 25% Primitivio, 25% Negroamaro, 25% Montepulciano, 25% Uva di Troia

Dark and intense with scents of Mediterranean shrubs and black fruits. Generous body with flavors of ripe, steeped plum, coffee bean, a touch of dark chocolate and a bold lingering finish.

The Primitivo gives the wine bold tannic structure and Zinfandel-esque pepper; the Negroamaro adds lushness of fruit and a ripe cobbler quality; the Montepulciano lends an even-handed balance. Uva di Troia is an ancient Greek varietal that is very dark and intense. This rare grape no longer grows in its native Greece, and can only be found in Puglia.

Ideal with rosemary lamb osso bucco, traditional garlic-based Mediterranean cuisines with tomatoes, olives and pungent herbs.
