The indigenous Negroamaro variety is another part of the heritage of the Salento area, so deeply imbued with history. This is a red with an extraordinary tannic texture, which remains impressed on one’s consciousness thanks to the depth of its purple highlights and its generous, easy-drinking style. It expresses all the warmth of earth from which it comes in the wealth of sensory nuances it displays: notes of roses, of strawberry preserve, of rosemary. It matures in the cellars in 65-hectolitre casks for a year, before resting for some time in bottle where its opulence becomes tempered to a degree. It is like a summer’s day, happy and sunny, at the fi rst sip; like a glimpse of spring, with its attractive and inviting freshness, as one fi nishes one’s glassful. Drink it with the joy of discovery and with the respect due to this new frontier of Puglian quality wine.
