Papale Oro, the pearl of Varvaglione
The historic Varvaglione estate has hit the bullseye with its Primitivo di Manduria Papale Oro.
Marzia Varvaglione has a sunny, luminous smile that reflects the intrinsic open nature of people from Puglia. It is more than likely that she inherited this from her parents, a tight and passionate couple who, often with a passion out of the ordinary, were able to authentically relate the land they loved and with which they had a strong tie ever since the estate was founded in 1921.
The estate recently acquired a lovely Masseria farm house, a new jewel for hospitality, to add to the more impersonal and technological winery in Leporano. They produce a large number of wines and this Papale Oro is the feather in their cap.
