Negroamaro del Salento

Made from the Negroamaro grape variety with a minimum of Malvasia nera di Lecce, it is produced in the eponymous town in the province of Lecce. It has been cultivated in southern Puglia since the 6th century B.C. Macerated with select yeasts and fermented at controlled-temperature, it is aged in French oak barriques for about 6 months. A lovely ruby red colour verging on garnet, it has an intense bouquet of almond and blackberry, with a warm, rounded flavour.
