(2021) This wine from the small DOC of Ostuni, is made from the Ottavienello variety, the local name for the Cinsault grape. There's a lovely fragrance here, a hint of violets and dried aromatic herbs, ripe red fruits and a certain earthy, briar quality. The palate is flooded with sweet, plush fruit, but there's an underpinning of coffee and cream, a little truffle and Pinot-like mushroom that suffuses the finish, tannins ripe and creamy and excellent acid balance. What a delicious wine. Watch the video
