This complex, five year old wine encapsulates everything we love about a classic Southern Italian big red wine. Hailing from Puglia (pool-ya), an area famous for it’s warm dry climate located in the heel of the boot of Italy, this wine spends a minimum of nine months in oak and even more time in a steel tank before bottling.

This lengthy process results in more complex notes of dried flowers and baked fruits, rather than the fresh fruit of a younger wine. With subtle hints of roasted blueberries and blackberries, we recommend pairing this earthy red with flavorful meats like Guanciale, dry rubbed smoked ribs or pasta with tomato sauce. Whip up a Spaghetti alla Gricia dish to serve with this wine and round-out your Italian feast.
