Description: The Taurino family has been growing grapes and making wine in Puglia for seven generations, but it was Francesco Taurino who started the family business after World War II to supply Italy and Europe with authentic Apulian wines. Later, his son Cosimo grew the distribution and brought the production to world-class levels with the collaboration of Severino Garofano, a renowned Apulian enologist. Today, the estate encompasses 80 hectares of vineyards planted almost exclusively to Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera, both grapes indigenous to the area of Salento. This wine exhibits red burgundy color with a transparent hue at the center. Aromas of low hanging violets and wild berries. The palate has notes of coffee, cherries, and Ganache. Balanced acid/alcohol and firm, dusty tannins on the finish.

Food Pairing: Red meat, duck (roasted, Peking), sausages, tomato-based dishes, etc.
