Information

Tasting Note

Deep ruby red in color with purple shades, it has a bouquet rich in black fruits such as bluberries, black cherries and plums, as well as attractive spicy notes of pepper, chocolate and sweet cinnamon. On the palate it is complex and full-bodied, but with elegant, velvety tannins; the finish is tangy and very long.

Origin

From the ancient vineyards of Masseria Surani, in the Salento Region. The vines are Guyot-trained and organically grown; the soils are limestone-based and are rich in iron. Yields are naturally very low, and harvesting is by hand.

Vineyard

Masseria Surani is the result of Tommasi family passion for wine and their desire to discover and select the very best of Italian wines. The heart of the property is a manor house called Masseria dating back to the early 1900s. The vineyards stretch as far as the eye can see, surrounding the entire Masseria, warmed by the sun of Apulia. With 55 hectares of vineyards grown in accordance with the principles of organic viticulture, the philosophy of Surani relies on the idea of producing fine wines and enhancing the production of indigenous varieties such as Primitivo, Negroamaro and Fiano, preserving natural resources and biodiversity.
