GRATICCIAIA Red Wine Negroamaro I.G.P. Salento
Conceived from an intuition that brings to light an ancient technique that links past traditions to future visions. The drying experiment of the Negroamaro grapes coming from the ‘Caragnuli’ Cru, an 80-year-old Apulian sapling vineyard located in San Pancrazio Salentino, began in 1980, thanks to the insistence of the oenologist Severino Garofano who had always believed in versatility and nobility of this vine.
In 1986, after 6 years of attempts, the first vintage of ‘Graticciaia’ saw the light. The rest is a success story that gives the dignity that belongs to Negroamaro. After a careful selection of the grapes, we proceed with a light drying, followed by a 12-month refinement in French oak barriques, the last mile is covered in concrete until bottling.
