Description

Aiace, a strong personality

This wine, blend composed for 80% by Negroamaro and 20% by Malvasia Nera di Lecce, takes its name from Aiace Telamonio, the king of Salamina recounted in the Aeneid, leader in the Trojan war. Inspired by this character, the wine is powerful and structured and provides an aging of 12 months in barriques of first passage and another 12 months in large barrels, to then refine and complete another 6 months in bottle. Aiace is a perfect expression of the strength and typicality that the great Apulian red wines can have.

Intense ruby red with purple hues, it has an intense and dark nose that opens on hints of undergrowth and wet earth, a ferrous minerality and notes sweeter spicy with cloves, vegetable nuances in the background with slight gusts of dried violet. The taste is soft, round but powerful, completely envelops the palate and is perfectly matched to the nose, with tannin present but integrated that helps a long closure, on green tones.

Stewed boar or agnolotti with lamb sauce.
