Verso is a full-bodied, luscious wine made with a small percent of 'appassimento', or raisined, grapes. The wine is matured for 3-4 months in oak. Rich and inviting, with lots of ripe and dried fruit. Full bodied and velvety. Very easy drinking.

Food and wine pairing: Can be drunk on its own, but works well with roast meats and winter stews. A wine for mature hard cheeses and pate.

60% Negroamaro, 35% Primitivo, (Zinfandel), 15% Malvasia Nera.

A blend of 60% Negroamaro, 35% Primitivo and 5% Malvasia Nera.

Production: The grapes come from selected vineyards harvested at the beginning of October, to allow the grapes to have increased maturation. After pressing the wine undergoes a long maceration on the skins to extract as much richness as possible. The wine is matured for 3-4 months in oak before being bottled.

Tasting notes: Rich and inviting, lots of ripe and dried fruits, such as plums and raisins. Dark chocolate and black pepper spice. Full bodied, mouth filling and velvety, sweet dark fruit balanced with some bramble characters and welcomed tannins. Very easy drinking.

Food and wine pairing: Can most certainly be drunk on its own, but works well with roast meats and winter stews. A wine for mature hard cheeses and pate.
