Vigneti del Salento 'I Muri' Negroamaro is a medium-bodied Italian red wine. Its ruby red colour hints at its rich aromas, with intense notes of blackberries and blackcurrants. Its velvety taste is finely balanced with a savoury finish. This is a very food friendly wine but is also tremendous with simple snacks shared with good friends.

About the Producer

This is Fantini’s venture in Puglia (they are also responsible for Gran Sasso, Zabù, Vesevo, Tufarello and others). The wines are made at two wineries in the province of Taranto on the western flank of Salento. The style of the wines - fresh whites, soft and generous reds - will be familiar to those who buy their other wines, as winemaker Filippo Baccalaro is the driving force behind this label. Filippo, a native of Piemonte, has been working in Puglia for almost two decades. He was attracted by the rich, ripe flavours of the fruit, and has the potential to capture these flavours with minimal use of technology and a lot of know-how.

Vineyard and Winery

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.

The grapes were gently pressed and cooled to 10ºC for a maceration period of 8-10 days with regular pumping over. Yeasts were added to start fermentation, which took place in stainlesssteel tanks under temperature-controlled conditions of up to 20ºC. The wine was then aged in used American and French oak for 4-5 months before bottling.

Wonderful!…

An absolute favourite of mine. Never disappoints.

Very rich red fruit flavours but not at all overpowering.
