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.
