Assaggiato in occasione del Vinitaly di Verona.
Vino molto interessante di ottima personalità, connubio riuscito fra la tipicità pugliese, qui espressa dal Negroamaro, e gli onnipresenti vitigni bordolesi Merlot e Cabernet Sauvignon.
Il naso reclama la sua appartenenza al Salento (il Negroamaro è nettissimo nella mora e prugna) con incursioni per nulla invadenti dei tipici sentori del Merlot e del Cabernet, ribes nero su tutti. Molto equilibrato l'uso del legno che si nota ma senza mai rubare la scena al protagonista principale.
In bocca entra con in piglio tannico stemperato dalla morbidezza del Merlot e del legno, oltre che dal calore dell'alcol che dona piacevolissima morbidezza. Tornano netti la mora e il ribes che si distendono in bocca fino ad avvolgerla completamente. Un equilibrio decisamente impeccabile.
