A strong attachment to the land, a passion lasting over one hundred years and meticulous attention to the vineyards, have led to the production of Speri wine. From the quaffable to the very highest level wines, Speri exhibits with great flair its own unique and unmistakable style. The Speri family are strong believers that wine is the “fruit of the earth” and therefore use only grapes from their own vineyards, taking complete care of every stage of cultivation.
This is a young, immediate red which retains the essence of the earth from which it was cultivated. It is characterised by fragrant scents and fresh flavours and is the ideal accompaniment for any kind of dish. It is particularly suited to classic Mediterranean cuisine.
