This wine has a deep ruby red colour with violet reflections. On the nose, it has intense aromas of red berry fruit. Full-bodied with firm tannins, it is well-balanced with lots of ripe fruit flavours that carry through onto the finish

The vineyards are mostly situated in the communes of Manduria and Sava, and are owned by growers who have worked with Farnese for many years. The vineyards are located at an altitude of 70-100 metres above sea level. Production is lower than its potential, which ensures that only the best quality grapes are selected. The red soils are calcareous clay and rich in iron, minerals and nutrients. 80% of the grapes come from old bush vines and the rest from trained vines that are at least 20 years old. Vines are trained with both Guyot and spurred cordon system.

This is Farnese’s venture in Puglia. The wines are made at two wineries in the province of Taranto on the western flank of Salento.
