In 1221, Frederick II entered in Capitanata. The DODICIVENTUNO is dedicated to him. This wine is vinified alone from Nero di Troia grapes, an ancient native Apulian vine. Warm, soft, it has a broad bouquet given by the aging in barrique for 12 months.
Produced only in exceptional vintages from careful hand selection of the best grapes; after long maceration, it ages in French oak barrels, followed by an aging in bottle for at least 2 years. Opulent, full-bodied, warm and with a long persistence. The bouquet is broad and complex: ripe red fruit jam, ethereal and spicy aromas in continuous evolution, in the final toasted and slightly balsamic notes. The character is long-lived with a maximum expressiveness of up to 10 years.
For the 2015 vintage we produced only 1,458 75 cl bottles.
