FLAMINIO Red Wine Ottavianello D.O.P. Ostuni

Flaminio is the interpretation that the Vallone family gives to native vineyards. The line takes its name from the historic Flaminio vineyards from which they are produced, and which are located on an ancient Messapian settlement on the outskirts of San Pietro Vernotico.

This is our ever-evolving tradition. Intense colors and fruity aromas. Ottavianello is a native grape typical of the upper Salento. Genetically similar to Cinsault; It has a cherry red color and ultra-restrictive production regulations in the vineyard! For all of you with an unconventional spirit, our Ottavianello DOC Ostuni is also excellent cold!
