  4. Pier delle Vigne Murgia IGT

The namesake of this wine, Pier delle Vigne, was the right-hand man of Frederick II of Swabia and the one who is credited with introducing the first red wine grapes to Puglia. “His” wine is painstakingly produced from Montepulciano and Aglianico grapes grown in the winery’s finest vineyards in the Murge hills. This blend successfully marries the structure and aging potential of Aglianico with the softness and fruitiness of Montepulciano. The final wine is powerful yet elegant and has become one of Puglia's most sought-after treasures.

Tasting Notes

Opaque ruby in color, aromas of wild red berries, vanilla, black pepper, tobacco leaf, cinnamon, and bittersweet chocolate abound on the nose. On the palate, the wine shows expressive notes of ripe berries and blackberries while boasting a velvety, elegant texture—this hearty red achieves perfect equilibrium between fruit and oak.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with steak tartare, barbecue sauces, smoked paprika-crusted filets, and beef with poblano mole.
