I Vini d'Italia 2008
The winery, beginning only a few years ago, represents the happy synthesis of defending the best characteristics of the tradition, and modern winemaking (but doesn't standardize the wines aroma or palate). The owner and winemaker, Australian Lisa Gilbee, cultivates a few hectares in the best regions of Maduria, and all of the ages from the mature (30 year vines) to the venerable (70 years). This is the beginning of the powerful, racy reds, where the energy and exuberance is focused in an ambient of bouquet, and “civilized” flavors and grand equilibrium.

Guida del vini Italiani 2008
Arrived at the fragrance almost at the level of excellence. The grand fruitiness of the wines of Morella, more lively and worked than in the past, conquers with power and expression . Of intense spiceyness the Primitivo Malbek 2005, and great cleanliness and turgidity in the case of La Signora 2005. Arriving in the Annuario dei Migliori (Annual of the Best) the Primitivo Old Vines 2005, its great volume, for its roundness and intense flavor is really superior. Well Done.
Vini d'Italia 2008
Winemaker Lisa Gilbee, Australian owner of this little winery, now only lacks the honorary citizenship, since her primitivo wines, though “thoughtfully” made and in a modern way, show a radical capacity to interpret the territory, leaving us admiring and convinced to have found in her products a real protagonist in the enological scene in Puglia.
This year is a double, because 2 wines have reached the finals, both primitivo 100%. Confirming the Old Vines, in the version 2005, dark ruby red, with an intense nose and notes of liquored prunes, red fruits and tobacco, while on the palate it is rich, full and dense, with well integrated tannins and a delicious finish as the red fruits return. La Signora 05 is also of a high level with notes of ink, china, with little black fruits, while on the palate a well presented structure, chewy, with fine silky tannins and a fragrant and fruity finish.
