About the Producer
In the hands of the third generation of the family, represented by Sebastiano and Marco, the most up-to-date viticultural and oenological practices are married to the deepest respect for natural processes. Their programme of uncompromising quality begins with the expert management of 75 hectares of estate vineyards, farmed according to the protocols of sustainable viticulture. The vineyards are located at 200-230 metres with deep tufa-limestone soils, yielding fine native-variety grapes, the whites with firm acidities and the reds of impressive elegance and structure.
Vineyard and Winery
The vineyards for this Rivera Negroamaro are in the Salento Peninsula in the southern part of Apulia region. The vines are trained in the “Salento gobelet” style on calcareous clay soils at the altitude of 50-80 mt. Average yield is 80-90 q./ha. Harvest occurs during the second week in September. Upon arrival at the winery the grapes are sorted and then macerated at 25 °C for 7-8 days in stainless steel vats with frequent pump-overs. Once made the wine is allowed to finish in glass-lined concrete vats for nine months to maintain the fruit and varietal character.
Good enough to have on its own or with food - dark fruits and silky. Very decent.
