NZ International Wine Show judges write: “Decadent and powerful with opulent red and black fruit, Hints of rose petal, chocolate, spicy oak and a firm rich finish. A superb dinner party wine.”

Vigneti del Salento is the new solo venture in Puglia of the Farnese group. The wines are made at two wineries in the province of Taranto on the western flank of Salento. The style of wines - fresh whites, soft and generous red, will be familiar to those who buy their other wines, as winemaker Filippo Baccalaro is the driving force behind this new label. The star wines are, of course, made from native grapes like Verdeca, Negroamaro and of course, one of our most successful wines in NZ, Primitivo.
