Organoleptic properties

Deep ruby red. On the nose, clear and persistent sensations of the juicy fruitiness of the grape variety, with aromas of red plum, mulberry, pink pepper and intriguing hints of sandalwood. Dry and rigorous in the mouth, it is truly pleasing and never tiring.

Description

The grapes of this wine come both from the newer vineyards and, in part, from our best alberello crus. Great served at a low temperature during the summer months.

The name of this wine recalls the Greek word oros which means “border” and also indicates the ancient road near Masseria Li Veli which divided the Byzantine properties from those of the Lombards, called “Limite dei Greci” (Greek border)
