Description

Negroamaro is considered the main native grape variety of Salento, with an excellent content of tannins and flavour compounds that give intense but elegant, fruity and spicy wines. Negroamaro is also known by its high content in resveratrol, an antioxidant and anticancer substance present in other black grape varieties but found in relevant quantities only in Negroamaro.

HARVEST: manual harvest is carried out in the early hours of dawn, when low temperatures and dry weather help preserving freshness and aroma; the bunches are placed in small baskets of 5 kg and quickly taken to the cellar, avoiding unwanted macerations or early fermentations.
