Available Red Blend 2013
The 2013 harvest in Puglia, Italy experienced unusual weather conditions – both high and low temperature extremes. It was a late and long harvest season. Meticulous farming combined with a longer growing season resulted in a complex wine. The long maturation period led to high quality and more aromatics. Puglia, in general, produces richer Sangiovese. This wine is no exception - it is layered with aromas and flavors and is overall a very intriguing wine. Look: Ruby red with purple hue. Nose: Intense aromas of ripe red cherries and strawberries, licorice, and clove. Blueberry and other subtle black fruit aromas emerge as one swirls the wine. Mouth: This medium-bodied blend starts with ripe red fruits, huckleberry, and light toasted oak. The wine has ripe tannins and great texture. The finish is clean with bright acid and a hint of cherry cola.
