Wine Maker Notes Pier delle Vigne was produced for the first time in 1991, and with the exception of the 2002 growing year, has always been a star performer. Its namesake, Pier delle Vigne, was the right-hand man of Frederick II of Swabia and the one who introduced the first red-wine grapes into this area. ”His” wine is painstakingly produced from Montepulciano and aglianico grapes grown in our finest vineyards. It is then aged for 24 months in once-used barrels to soften aglianico’s typically aggressive tannins, then the final blend is assembled and the wine receives another year of bottle-ageing. This is a powerful yet elegant wine, one that has become one of Puglia’s most sought-after treasures.
