The Prince of Anjou

The Court of the company, the history of southern Apulia Maheu is linked to the Angevin dynasty. Taranto, Apulia, Salento, ionic and bow messapico were the place where the family of Anjou had glories and damnations in the time of the early Middle Ages until the advent of the municipalities. Thinking to the glories of the French family, you can't help but look for emotional parallels between the history of Puglia to the slow and impressive evolution in the quality of wines produced in this territory. The splendour continues for hyperbole, of Captivate our senses. The primitive taste is wonderful. We like to stress that the open bottle is the harvest of 2006. 11 years of evolution that are not experiencing no yielding. Just like the glories of the Angevin family, still fresh in the memory, even this wine traces the same moments: shiny, vivid, infiniti. The wine is for meditation. A wine shipment, still alive, safe and portentous. Even combined with a second game, Fada or Hare, particularly structured wine sauces manages to counterpose a alcohol and tannins warm and long. Just as the family court of Anjou had its strong points that gave the best splendor in vogue during the medieval period, also the company Melillo got his milestone; a lush, rich, opulent wine. A wine that gives the history of the company, his best memory.
