FLAMINIO Red Wine Primitivo I.G.P. Salento

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. The trendiest grape variety of the moment, produced by us. Gentle tannin, balanced residual thickness in the mouth. In short; the primitive of Salento Vallone.
