Tasting Note

Giacomo and Sandro Candido's range is perhaps the most diverse and innovative to be found in Puglia. The climate is Mediterranean with low rainfall and ripening takes place slowly due to the striking contrast between day and night-time temperatures, resulting in a strong development of aromas, richness and concentration. This historic, family-owned property continues to amaze under the guiding hand of one of Italy’s top winemakers, Donato Lanati. This wine is a delightful ruby colour which develops hints of orange on the rim with maturity. The nose has distinctive aromas of cocoa and leather. On the palate, it has rich and warm black fruit notes, fig and well combined with the typical French oak aromas. On the finish a delicious creamy bitter-chocolate character, balanced by perfect amount of acidity and smoky oak, with superb length.

The must is fermented on the skins at a controlled temperature for about five days. After alcoholic and malolactic fermentation have taken place in stainless steel tanks, the wine is matured in large oak casks.

Food Recommendation

Pasta dishes with rich sauces, roast meats - red and white poultry, mixed grills.


  • For team leader Angela Reddin, this worthy Gold winner opened with some serious ‘humidor aromas, as well as some crushed red bramble fruits, leading to a good, spicy palate with some good fruit and some tertiary leathery characteristics, too’. Woodhead 17’s James Fryer added praise for its ‘tart palate, with black plum and kirsch notes, as well as some mouthwatering acidity’, while team leader Carlos Ferreira further identified some ‘red roses, cherries and pine, with a fresh finish’.

  • This is a delightful, easy-drinking red possesses ripe berry fruit aromas and a distinctive, seductive smokiness. It screams dried fruit to the taste, and remains powerful and robust throughout the chocolatey finish. Very much a food wine...and shows just what can be achieved with this Puglian favourite without having to empty the coffers!
