F Negroamaro Salento PGI cl75

Among the oldest Negramaro vineyards in Salento, we have long searched for grapes suitable for expressing the soul of this noble vine. We have chosen only three vineyards and F is the letter we used to indicate them. F of Feudi di San Marzano. Part of our history, this letter has become a quality mark for Negramaro, a symbol of our passion for this ancient and difficult grape.
