Winery Notes:
Following the overture of I-1, we proudly offer the second act of Locations, Italia. With over 2000 indigenous grape varieties to select and compose a blend, an exhaustive search was undertaken to pay homage to this historic region. Maintaining the integrity of the land was paramount while simulta- neously considering the end result of a dynamic and innovative wine. Powerful and rich fruit from Puglia (Torricella and Manduria) serves as the base with a lively vein of acidity from Barbera (Alba) that stabilizes things in just the right way.

Winemakers Notes:
A vibrant ruby, coral hue invites the nose and features intense aromas of dark fruits, spices, and wild flowers. On the palate, rich flavors of plums, black cherries and mineral components dominate the entry leading to layered nuances of currants and strawberry jam. The edges are soft and finishes clean with brightness.

Blend:
A blend of Negroamaro and Nero d?Avola from the Southern region of Puglia combined with Barbera from Piemonte in the North.

Maturation:
Barrel aged 10 months prior to release.
