An extremely special and unorthodox wine known as a 'Super Southern' combining southern Italy's big hitters from all over southern Italy. Notes of rosemary, chocolate and raisin with a smooth palate bursting with fruit. This is a blockbuster that will get better and better with age but is drinkable young. Incredibly smooth and succulent, juicy, full-bodied and OUTSTANDING!

Vinification: Grapes were pressed and destemmed before maceration and fermentation which lasted 25 days. Malolactic fermentation took place in new oak barriques, of which 60% were American and the remainder French. The wine remained in oak for 13 months. The varieties are aged separately before blending to create a rich and powerful, yet eminently drinkable wine.
