A full-bodied Appassimento wine obtained by carefully selected and sun dried grapes. This brand is a tribute to the South of Italy and to its fascinating history.
Roman times when Pliny the Old owned the wonderful and special marvels of the land. One of these enchanting places is the Plinian Source.
The brand recalls a beautiful almond tree grown near the Plinian source. It’s a tree loved by the Apulian inhabitants.
Enchanting, full bodied and intense that delights sip after sip.
The climate is warm and temperate, with significant rainfall all year round. During the summer the African winds cause rapid and marked rise of the thermometer and high temperature variation.
In the last ten days of September the perfect ripeness of the grapes is reached and winemaking process starts from the vine. The withering process takes place in the vineyard by cutting the petiole of grapes but leaving them on the vine for about 15-20 days, during this period 50% of their weight evaporate. This will allow for wines with typical notes of ripe fruits, such as plums and raisins. The handpicked grapes are pressed and the fermented. The skins are left in contact with the must for a long period to extract flavours and the characteristic red colour. Subsequently the wine is left to complete the malolactic fermentation; this contributes to the peculliar complexity of this wine.
