Description

The name ‘Canace’ comes from ‘blending’ the initial syllables of the towns where the wineries are located – Canosa, in the hills north of Bari in the DOC Castel del Monte area, at 480 metres above sea level, and Acerenza in Basilicata. Soils are calcareous and rocky, and vines are trained to vertical shoot position and Guyot trained, with a density of 3,500 per hectare.

Deep red in colour with hints of violet. The complex bouquet offers warm spices, cocoa, coffee, liquorice and ripe berry fruit. Soft and velvety on the palate, the full-bodied Canace has a fresh acidity from the Aglianico, balanced with elegant tannins and lingering spice.
