An intense red colour with scarlet highlights. On the nose it is very rich with a great intensity of of fruit: bottled fruits and jam; lightly toasted and with hints of vanilla and chocolate. Ripe and soft in the mouth with the tannins perfectly in balance with the fruit and a long finish showing touches of almond and hezelnut. A complex. and serious wine with a great depth and elegance.
HISTORICAL AND TECHNICAL NOTES
Sometimes an error can lead to an unplanned success... The name "Ettamiano" derives from a written mistake made by a town Clerk at the end of the 19th Century when recording the name of Angelo Maci 's grandfather who was the founder of a family of passionate winemakers and growers....an amusing anecdote which adds to the legend behind the wine.
The late harvest is done by hand into plateaux to preserve the structure of the grapes, after a careful selection and thinning in the vineyards. Then, a parte of them are dried (Appassimento)min the cellar which are kept free of humidity to avoid spoilage.
The resultant wine is then aged in oak barrels to soften the tannins and odd a toasty elegance. The microclimate of the Salento region gives it a warm, consistent and sturdy structure which is typical of the best wine of South Italy.
