Alessandro Candido’s range is perhaps the most diverse and innovative to be found in Puglia, yet the wines continue to offer unbeatable value-for-money. The climate is Mediterranean with low rainfall, and ripening takes place slowly due to the striking contrast between day and night-time temperatures, resulting in a strong development of aromas, richness and concentration. This historic, family-owned property continues to amaze under the guiding hand of one of Italy’s top winemakers, Donato Lanati.

The must is fermented on the skins at a controlled temperature for about five days. After alcoholic and malolactic fermentation have taken place in stainless steel tanks, the wine is matured in large oak casks.

95% Negroamaro, 5% Malvasia Nera.

This wine is a delightful ruby colour which develops hints of orange on the rim with maturity. The nose has an ethereal bouquet and distinctive aromas of cocoa and leather. On the palate, it has a pleasant enveloping structure with the typical rich and warm black fruit notes well combined with the typical French oak aromas.
