Negroamaro Orfeo Paolo Leo Puglia IGT

Negroamaro is Considered the most famous of the native Salento vines, Negroamaro tells the identity of Salento thanks to its structure, persistence and charm. Its character, decisive and rustic, makes it a red wine with a romantic and persuasive sip



PRODUCTION AREA: rural area of Salento in an area exposed to the winds of the Ionian and Adriatic Seas, extending from the province of Taranto to Brindisi

TRAINING SYSTEM: traditional 50-year-old Apulian sapling, with short pruning, with two-bud spurs to enhance the resources of the cultivation fund

SOIL: medium texture

PLANTING DENSITY AND YIELD: 4500 plants per hectare, yield is 1.2 kg per plant.

GRAPE HARVEST: Manual harvesting is carried out in the early hours of the morning. The bunches are lovingly placed in small crates of about 5 kg, thus preserving their integrity. The delivery to the cellar is very careful and is carried out with particular speed so that the grapes can express their maximum potential.

WINEMAKING:After harvesting, the grapes are destemmed and the crushed grapes ferment in steel at a controlled temperature of 25 °C for 8-10 days. Maceration on the skins lasts 12-15 days, with careful pumping over and final soft pressing of the pomace.

MATURATION: 3 months in steel, 12 months in American and French oak barrels and 3 months in bottle.

VOL.: 14.5° alc.

TASTING NOTES: Ruby red color with garnet reflections. On the nose, it shows a breadth of illustrious elegance. Praiseworthy spices fade into jammed, sweet and candied fruits. Orange peels dipped in dark chocolate are a more than surprising treat. Blackberries, mulberries and raspberries are a juicy, summery touch. The finish is reminiscent of cocoa with small notes of cappuccino. The sip is decidedly voluminous. The tannins, particularly soft and enveloping, create a balance of the senses in perfect harmony. With a long and persistent finish, it masterfully satisfies all the senses.
