User Reviews for Francesco Candido Aleatico di Puglia

Winemaker's Notes:

It was in 1929 that Francesco Candido produced his first wine - an important date marking the start of a Salento-style oenological story that is still alive today thanks to the hard work and passion of Alessandro and Giacomo, the third generation of the Candido family. These two brothers have nurtured a sensible approach to farming their land while also setting in motion a programme of innovation and development in order to make a name for themselves at a competitive level both at home in Italy and abroad. This 100% Aleatico wine is crimson in colour developing hints of amber with maturity. It is broad, rich, penetrating and showing maturity on the nose. On the palate, it is medium sweet with a good acid backbone, velvety and delicious with dried raisin characteristics reminiscent of Muscat. A very powerful wine, it stands up well to very mature, strongly flavoured cheeses, dry pastries, almond and chestnut paste and roasted almonds.
