Amastuola is situated on a plateau, 210 meters above sea level, near Crispiano in the Puglia region of Southwest Italy. Its surrounded by about 170 ha of land, mostly planted in vineyards with olive trees and stone walls. The farm itself has been an agricultural center since the fifteenth century, as evidenced by decades of archaeological investigations carried out on its land. The vineyards benefit from a microclimate that favours organic farming and the precious minerals and nutrients of the terroir give the wines a very special aroma. The vineyard was designed by Fernando Caruncho, a landscape architect. Amastuola wine is 100% EU Certified Organic from 2012.
In the glass, a deep, ruby red colour. On the nose, blue and black fruits reminiscent of blueberry and blackberry, with added plum and cherry. Sweet spice is also dominant and carries through to the palate with the other fruit; full and coating with all the notes from the nose and an added mineral backbone. Pair with a variety of red meats, cheese, or even lamb.
Made from 100% Primitivo grapes, the wine ages 18 months, part in oak barrel and a part in medium size stainless steel tanks, equipped with micro-oxygenation and at controlled temperature.
A deep and bright ruby-red colour; the aroma of this wine bursts into hints of prunes and cherry jam, with mineral notes and cinnamon. The taste has an impact of volume, although it is fine, rich and balanced, with hints of small wild berries and spices on the finish. I’ve enjoyed it with big vegetable flavours like caramelised onions, mushrooms and olives. Simply sipping on it with no food and of course meat; burgers, tenderloin and even grilled chicken. Honestly, a staple wine in my house now; both well-priced and delicious!
