Description

Codici is another label within the Mondo del Vino portfolio, a Merlot/Negroamaro blend from Puglia, the heal of Italy. The south is renowned for fruity, rustic wines, offering great value for money for everyday drinking. The new trend is to add some appassimento grapes. A small portion of grapes are dried then added to the fermentation when it has almost finished. This encourages the yeast to continue fermenting, creating added richness and flavour in the finished wine.

Smells

a heady bouquet of concentrated, wild raspberries, violets, lavender with brown spices and a smattering of dusty oak.

Tastes

the palate has wonderfully opulent fruit, typical of the south with a slightly dried raisin character giving the illusion of sweetness. The wine is dry, however. Wild berry flavours, pomegranate, cranberry with hints of cinnamon and cocoa marry perfectly with the slightly fury tannins and the fresh acid vein. Great drinking now though 2023 with roasted red meats or stews.
