rosati pugliesi

The tradition of Apulian rosés is well established. We offer two, one from Aglianico grapes and one from Negroamaro. Which one intrigues you the most?

Pink wines, you know, can be made from any red grape variety; the color depends on how long the must stays in contact with the grape skin, which is what contains the coloring substances. We have so many grapes in Italy that there are a thousand different rosés, but some grapes have proven over time to be better suited to producing fragrant and elegant rosés, which are what the market demands.
 
Puglia's long tradition of rosés draws on the many local grapes, including Negroamaro, Primitivo, but also Aglianico or Nero di Troia. We propose two, the choice is yours.
 
The first is the Aglianico Ondarosa from Amastuola, a winery in Massafra, in the province of Taranto, where Peppino Montanaro, together with his children Filippo, Ilaria and Donato and with the collaboration of his son-in-law Giuseppe Sportelli, has brought this splendid farm back to its former glory. Wine has been made here for at least four centuries, and the structure of the Masseria, recovered with particularly careful restoration work, is a splendid wine resort. Particularly interesting is the "wave" vineyard, with rows that meander and follow the lines of the hills, designed by garden architect Fernando Caruncho. 
 
The second, however, is Apollonio's Diciotto Fanali, a Rosato del Salento from Negroamaro grapes. Dating back to 1870, the Apollonio winery is a true institution in Salento, extending over 100 hectares where native and international grape varieties are grown, but the family's intent has always been the enhancement of Salento's identity grape varieties: Negroamaro and Primitivo, but also Malvasia nera, Susumaniello and Bianco d'Alessano. Marcello and Massimiliano Apollonio, the fourth generation at the helm of the winery, produce wines between tradition, history and innovation.
