Description

Bocca di Lupo is the spark that lit the enological dream of the estate. The desire to rediscover this noble and austere varietal by offering an authentic apulian interpretation drove our ambitious project. Alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel truncated cone vats and at the end the wine was transferred into French oak barriques where malolactic fermentation and aging took place.  Bocca di Lupo was bottled and aged for at least one year in the bottle.

Bocca di Lupo 2019 is a deep, intense ruby red color. The nose expresses notes of red fruit like morello cherries, currants, and ripe pomegranates. The complex bouquet is completed by spicy hints of white pepper and licorice accompanied by balsamic notes of thyme and eucalyptus. The palate is refined with vibrant yet silky tannins. A lengthy and persistent finish delivers pleasant sensations of freshness and complexity. Bocca di Lupo 2019 reveals excellent aging potential.
