In the 19th century, after nearly being wiped out by Phylloxera , the grape is now experiencing a great revival in southern Italy.
Vinified in a forward, drinking style with lively flavorful fruit with a deep plummy color with big tannins and firm structure. On the palate the grape offers typical notes of black fruits, smoke, dark chocolate, and mineral. #les-sommeliers
