The Paolo Leo winery has been in the ownership of the Leo family for many generations and has seen several changes in the fortunes of Puglia over the years. Their mission remains unchangeable; to offer consumers wines that mirror the smell, flavours and the character of Puglia.
The harvest is carried out in the early morning. The grapes are De-stemmed prior to fermentation. This is carried out at a controlled temperature of 22 - 24°C for 8-10 days with selected yeasts, during which pumping over takes place daily. Malolactic fermentation is allowed to begin immediately after the alcoholic fermentation. The wine is then aged for 5 months in steel tanks, followed by a further month in bottle.
This wine has a brilliant ruby red colour with hints of violet. The aromas are both complex and fragrant, with hints of cherry and red fruits. It has a soft and enveloping taste with a persistent finish.
