Blackberry, plum, all the purple fruits. Spicey with a fresh finish. The wine has some lingering grip. Good with a chill, but medium body.
Tenuta Demaio is a Biodynamic estate whose main production is olive oil. They have 50 hectares, 15 are vines. Puglia is a hot, hot region, but Tenuta Demaio is located in the mountain village of San Severo, so the vines get some relief in the evening.
Hand-harvested, the wine spends 7 days on the stems in steel, native ferment, then 9 months in steel and 2 months in bottle. Low sulfur added at bottling.
