The prince of the heel of the boot is undoubtedly the Primitivo , which in the Manduria region gives rise to an almost impenetrable intense ruby red wine, characterized by aromas of blackberry, plum, black cherry and a full and enveloping taste . Thanks to the high sugar content that this grape variety can reach when fully ripe under the Apulian sun, Primitivo can be vinified in the Sweet Natural version, ideal as an accompaniment to almond paste pastries, chocolate desserts, seasoned or blue cheeses. .

Another star of the Salento firmament is the Negroamaro , an extremely versatile grape, also widely used for the vinification in rosé . Its intense and fruity aroma recalls small black berry fruits, the taste is always full-bodied but fresher and drier than Primitivo.

The third red grape variety in importance is the Malvasia Nera di Brindisi , used for its softness both as a cutting grape in combination with the Negroamaro in Salice Salentino Rosso, and in purity .

Salento is one of the wine-growing areas in Italy that boasts a long tradition in the production of rose wine , which draws its origin from the ancient "teardrop" winemaking technique dating back to Roman times, which consisted in letting the grapes water in the forum vinarium before the pressing, collecting and vinifying separately the precious flower must that came out.

It is no coincidence that Salento comes from the most famous Italian rosé wine: Leone de Castris' Five Roses , the first rosé to be bottled and marketed in Italy in 1943.

Introduced in the region in the twelfth century by the Angevins, Fiano is the white grape variety that is preparing to become another ambassador of Apulian wine and that in Salento has found a perfect acclimatization, becoming the white grape variety most cultivated together with Chardonnay and autochthonous Verdeca .

Characterized by a good aromaticity , Fiano presents to the nose with a complex bouquet with floral notes of acacia and honeysuckle, enriched with hints of white and tropical fruit, dried fruit and honey. Although supported by a good acidic shoulder, it is soft and persistent on the palate. Excellent as an aperitif, it goes perfectly with fish and seafood dishes .
