Jo comes from Jonio, latin and Italian name for the Ionian sea that laps the coast of Manduria. Moreover, onico is one of the synonyms of Negroamaro, the local varietal. There is light drying of the grapes while they are still on the vines. Harvested in September, the grapes are destemmed, softly crushed, and macerated in 70 HL stainless steel tanks for 3-4 weeks. The wine is aged in French oak barriques (50% in new barrels and 50% once used barrels). 

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby-red in color, this wine has intense aromas of dried red fruits, chocolate, herbs and tobacco. On the palate, it is structured and sumptuous, sustained by firm but elegant tannins. A very long and balanced finish underlines the high quality of this wine.

Food Pairing

Pair with spaghetti puttanesca, stuffed peppers, or lamb kebabs.
