INTENSE AND COMPLEX NEGROAMARO AND PRIMITIVO BLEND
This wine has an intense ruby red-color, with a complex bouquet, reminiscent of red berries, redcurrants and licorice. The oak anging adds a pleasant spiciness. On the palate, it is full-bodied, lush yet supple, well-balanced and with a long and lingering finish.
- French and American oak for 3 months
- 60% Negroamaro & 40% Primitivo
- Bouquet of Red Berries
Cellaring: Drink when young
Food Pairing: The smoky char of grilled meat, spicy charcuterie, and rich, caramelized tones in braises and roasts all bring out the fullest expression of its fruit
STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Paolo Leo, born in 1960, was born into a family where producing wine was an inevitable legacy; in the early 20th century, the forefather began to vinify his grapes in the Monticello Masseria, then his son Paolo Leo inherited the land and built the palmento (the first stone building used to produce wine) in the village.
