Masseria Doppio Passo Copertino Riserva 2017
Masseria Doppio Passo Copertino Riserva has an alluring deep red colour. It has captivating aromas of cherries and berries with lots of spice. This beautiful bouquet of red is soft and round on the palate. It is well-balanced with velvety tannins and a long-lasting finish. Smooth and easy to drink with every slurp.
If you like the dark, baked fruit flavours of southern Italian reds, here's one to top the bill. It's from the Botter family winery, founded in Puglia in 1928. There they employ the skills of winemaker Marco Flacco. For extra power and intensity, he used pure Negroamaro taken from the tiny enclave of Copertino. He vinified the main batch, but let a portion of the grapes ripen longer on the vine and fermented them separately. The main wine is then repassed over the grape skins from the longer hang portion to start a second fermentation. The result is a more intense, punchy and weighty style. It's much like Ripasso they use in the north and the results are rich and spicy.
Top tip: Open this lovely bottle early and decant. Serve with a hearty casserole or grilled meats.
