The spices of joy

Do not call it only primitive sweeten it in any other way; The wine tasting is not for many, but only for the taster accustomed to the study of a unique terroir for the region Apulia: Murgia. Our blog is still back in Puglia, a region with a thousand potentials, always ready for new entrepreneurial challenges, and today, recognized as one of the most prolific regions in the quality of viticulture. The experts in the sector know that in Puglia, the primitive lives a double role, perhaps a double identity; A bit like the oldest traditions of Puglia where once the family, during the summer, left the cities to go to the surrounding countryside to spend the "beautiful season" with the family, even the primitive seems to change skin depending on the " Season ". What we are telling today is a happy season, which we define as "hilly" of the Plantamura company, in the vicinity of Gioia del Colle. The Vicisitudini of the grape varieties are well known to the most; However, the "hilly" robe of this grape passionately fascinates the palates most accustomed to the spices, the toasting, the roundness more markedly sharp compared to the cousin of the wine. The wine has an intense ruby colour, its moderate consistency accompanies a remarkable intensity and complexity for a wine aged in steel. The surprising thing is just as the wine has the smell of spicy notes sharp and well defined, markedly typical of the hilly terroir of the Murge and the vine that is represented in this tasting. The clove hanging between a note of veiled licorice and a coffee bean opens the dances at the first sip that develops with a caudalie typical of a red wine like that in tasting. We have combined the wine with a very structured dish with a good spicy (black pepper): a braised meat of horse, softened by a sauce of cardoncelli mushrooms and, in fact, the black pepper. The absolute composure of the wine, which dominated with gustatory respect, in a way more than admirable the dish, has put us in front of a real horse of race of the Murgese plateau.
