Grape : 100% Pinot Noir

Tiny producers, nested and surrounded but miles of wild mediterranean bush, just few kilometres away from the seaside of the picturesque Polignano a Mare village in Puglia. Production of just over 3000 bottles and 2014 was their first vintage. A careful selection of hand harvested grape is folllowed by a spontanoeous fermentation in steel tanks, and rest for 1 year in tonneaux. Although Puglia, is a fairly hot region, with chalky and limestone soil, the bush play an essential role in keeping a cool temperature around the tiny vineyards, and as a result it produces a fine and fresh Pinot noir, smoky and leathery nose with undertones of baked berries, grilled/burnt plums with hints of orange zest, soft and velvety on the palate, intense and fine with good freshness and maturity, sloe berries, baked cherries, cooking herbs, plum jam and all with a savoury finish with recall the vicinity to the seaside, round subtle tannins create a perfect balance. Complex, neat, straightforward and serious, yet, unmistakably Pinot Noir.

Food Pairing : Fatty fish, Duck.
