Tenute Rubino Lamo Ostini Ottavianello DOC, Puglia, Italy, 2015
Jaddico, Marmorelle, Uggio and Punta Aquila stretch from the Adriatic coast to the hinterland of Brindisi. Tommaso's goal was to show Salento wine at it's very best and through the diverse range that his family now offer, made from local varietals like the fascinating Susamaniello and more well known ones such as Primitivo, they are well on their way.
The Ostuni vineyard, planted in 1994 is between 218 and 380 meters above sea level on clay soils, trained spurred cordon and at a density of 5000 vines per hectare. Yields are around 80kg per hectare.
Fermentation in stainless steel followed by malolactic fermentation. No oak influence or aging.
No oak treatment.
This wine has a medium intensity of red colour. Floral and spicy aromas with a hint of herbs. Pomegranate and black cherry adds to the complexity. It is appreciated for its light structure and for the gentle but firm character.
Pairs well with meatballs and bolognaise.
