VERSANTE Red Wine Negroamaro I.G.P. Salento

The line takes its name from the Adriatic side, where the Vallone vineyards extend. The typical colors of the Adriatic coast composed of the intense blue of the sea and the continuous alternation of the golden green of the olive leaves moved by the wind.

Here in these few words is contained the spirit of the Versante Vallone. The vine that more than any other represents the cornerstone of the genesis of quality Salento viticulture. Hints of red fruit accompany the unmistakable territoriality of our land.
