From old vines. Intense ruby red color with purplish notes, intense aroma with the presence of cherry jam and blackberries, soaked in lightly spiced tobacco. On the palate the sweetness of the spicy component is highlighted, with a finish that gives notes of cocoa and coffee. Very long, it will evolve further for the next 10 years.

Vigneti del Salento is a Fantini Group winery that is located in Puglia, Italy. This peninsula is an old wine growing area dating back to the ancient Greeks. It is a very hot region cooled by nighttime maritime breezes.
Vigneti del Salento has a special arrangement with the many growers in this region. The winemaking team carefully selects the best portions of each vineyard depending on clones, position in the vineyard and age of vines. They then direct the farming of these vineyard rows including reducing the yield per vine, to ensure the highest quality grapes. Since most of the vineyards are family owned, they tend to be smaller, allowing complete harvesting of all the vineyards in about 3 days. This means they can afford to wait for the optimum time to harvest.
The wines are indigenous varietals, Primitivo and Negoramaro, very food-friendly and great representations of the region.
