Winemaker's Notes:

100% Negroamaro harvested in mid September from head pruned vines. The wine was aged in barrique (80% American/20% French) for 14 months. Rich, opaque red in color with a scarlet purple rim. Exhibits aromas of dark berry fruit with rich, sweet and spicy backnotes. On the palate the wine is big with mouthfilling structure. Sweet red berry fruit flavors followed by a dense finish.
