grapes of this area originated, transported across the sea nearly 3000 years ago. Serra Sanguigna is the name of a prime zone in the interior of the Ciro appellation that is not only particularly beautiful but is responsible for producing classic wines of the appellation. The hillside vineyards are planted to a mix of Gaglioppo, Malvasia Nera and Greco Nero and from there, on a clear day, one can see the entire Gulf of Taranto to the north and the Capocolonna promontory to the south. The “Serra Sanguigna” is generally composed of 70% Gaglioppo, 15% Malvasia Nera and 15% Greco Nero. It is the most rustic wine of the estate marked by a powerful plum-infused fruit, robust in weight, deep ruby in color and surprisingly lithe on the palate. An age-worthy wine, our first release of Serra Sanguigna is the 2008 vintage released to the market in 2012.
