Wines

Rosone

From non-irrigated vineyards planted on poor soils, calcareous and rich in iron oxides. Grown with the ancient “alberello” system which naturally has a low yield but a great concentration and organoleptic complexity.
A Negroamaro with a strong character but delicate on the palate. The name and image on the label refer to the icon of the “Rosone”, a circular decorative window present on the facades of Romanesque,Gothic and Baroque churches. An explosion of architectural decorations rich in symbols that tell a reality full of facets. It is in these elements that the history of a territory is hidden that famous Guido Piovene defined “an infinite plain of embraces and sea breezes, a land of mirages and sweetness”. The symbolic meaning of the “Rosone” is closely related to the circle which, as an “infinite line”, without beginning and without end, is a symbol of God, and of eternity.

Stilio

Stilio

In the last few years, the “Stilio” wine has been added to the production. From selected grapes in low yield vineyards in the Manduria area. A part of the grapes that takes part in the production of this wine undergoes a slight drying in the plant. This allows to concentrate the aromas before harvesting thanks to a slight dehydration and consequent water loss of about 20-30%. A reference to the ancient Salento cultural tradition of the taranta, rediscovered in recent years. On the label a stylized diadem spider, on a black field. The overall image recalls the symbolism of the spider, of the taranta, whose bite generates the need of dance, music and colors in a cathartic effect, liberating emotions, which even the taste of this wine could evoke.
