Vigneti del Salento I Muri Negroamaro 2021
Region: Puglia, Italy
Bottle size: 75cl
This Negroamaro is ruby red in colour with purple hues. The aromas are intense with notes of blackberries and blackcurrants. It is medium bodied and velvety, with good balance and savoury notes on the finish.
The vineyards are mostly situated in the communes of Manduria and Sava and are owned by growers with whom Filippo has been working for many years. Production is lower than its potential, which ensures the best quality grapes are selected. The red soils are calcareous clay and rich in iron, minerals and nutrients. 80% of the grapes come from old bush vines and the rest from trained vines that are at least 20 years old.
This is Farnese’s venture in Puglia. The wines are made at two wineries in the province of Taranto on the western flank of Salento.
