The company is spread over a total area of about 44 hectares, 32 of which are vineyards, located in the area of Manduria (home of the famous Primitivo vine) and neighboring areas falling within the production area of high quality wines classified with the PDO Primitivo di Manduria and PGI Salento.
Exclusive native grape variety of the beautiful land of Apulia. Our Negroamaro is located in different geographical areas between Manduria and Lizzano, where it benefits from the temperature and fresh winds of the Ionian Sea. A variety that expresses hints of Mediterranean maquis with a very rich pulp and a compact bunch.
The king of Apulian vines. It is a variety of great vigour, which matures very early, developing great characteristics of concentration and taste and aroma power.
The company owns several hectares of this variety, bred partly with the spurred cordon method but also with the ancient and traditional “sapling” method. The properties cultivated with sapling are those of more advanced age.
Characterized by a very low yield, it has been revalued in recent decades in Puglia by those companies oriented to high quality in their production. A grape variety with excellent olfactory characteristics, able to express in our wine a pleasant, round fruit, but at the same time of good drinkability and freshness.
