Pier delle Vigne Murgia IGT 1996

A blend of 60% Aglianico and 40% Montepulciano harvested in mid to late October from vineyards located in the Murge hills. The must remains in contact with the skins for 12 days to ensure ideal color extraction and concentration. Pier delle Vigne is refined for 24 months in Allier and Tronçais barrels, followed by an additional 12 months in bottle.

Tasting Notes

Bright ruby in color when it is first bottled, this wine tends to turn amber around the edges as it ages. Generous and elegant on the nose with hints of wild berries. On the palate, the wine is full bodied with fine tannins and excellent structure. In s

Food Pairing

Recommended with grilled steak and game.
