After harvest, the grapes were gently pressed and cooled to 10ºC for a maceration period of 8-10 days with regular pumping over. Yeasts were added to start fermentation, which took place in stainless-steel tanks under temperature-controlled conditions of up to 20ºC. The wine was then aged in used American and French oak for 4-5 months before bottling.

Danilo Gizzi is a talented winemaker with a passion for local viticulture. He has a firm belief in natural know-how and minimal use of technology to make wines from native grapes. Grapes are taken from mature vines and below full potential to ensure only the best grapes are used.

This Negroamaro pairs perfectly with hearty red meat dishes and rich, tomato based sauces.

Negroamaro, a dark-skinned grape variety, is celebrated for its deep colour, medium to full tannins, and dark berry fruit favours, along with earthen tones that lend the wine a complex character.

Sun-drenched Puglia is a historic wine-producing region. Its Mediterranean climate and iron-rich red calcareous soils nurture robust reds like Negroamaro and Primitivo and refreshing whites. The climate has hot, dry summers and mild winters, which contribute to the intense flavour profiles of its wines; ripe fruit flavours and spice. 2021 was a challenging vintage due to drought, but careful vineyard management ensured the production of quality grapes with vibrant flavours and aromas.
