For a red wine from Puglia, this red is fresh and alive! Notes of plum, dark berries with a little spice and smoke. The wine has some lingering grippy tannins, but still holding vibrancy for a wine that comes from a warm weather region. This wine is even good with a slight chill. Highly recommend this wine, it will be the talk of the table.
