"Packed with dark, spicy fruit and punchy flavour, a terrific new find for Italian wine lovers" Leonardo Bassano

Tasting note information
If you like the dark, baked fruit flavours of southern Italian reds, here's one to top the bill. It's from the Botter family winery, founded in Puglia in 1928. There they employ the skills of winemaker Marco Flacco. For extra power and intensity, he used pure Negroamaro taken from the tiny enclave of Copertino. He vinified the main batch, but let a portion of the grapes ripen longer on the vine and fermented them separately. The main wine is then repassed over the grape skins from the longer hang portion to start a second fermentation. The result is a more intense, punchy and weighty style. It's much like Ripasso they use in the north and the results are rich and spicy. Open early and decant. Serve with a hearty casserole or grilled meats.
