Red Wine Red Wine Score: Wine That Excels in Its Category

Salento (Apulia) The wine shows a beautiful and intense ruby red color and nuances of garnet red, little transparency. The nose reveals a good and clean olfactory profile, with aromas of black cherry, raspberry and plum jam followed by aromas of licorice, violet, dried rose, vanilla and hints of toasted wood and coffee. The attack to the mouth is pretty tannic and alcoholic, however balanced and with good correspondence to the nose and of good body. The finish is persistent with clean and pleasing flavors of black cherry, plum jam and dried rose. Messere Andrea is produced by a long maceration of skins followed by a 12 month aging in barrique.
