Sustainable

The Azienda Agricola Tenuta Viglione has its origins in the old agricultural and viticultural traditions of Zullo’s family. They were moved by the desire to develop the huge winemaking potential of the area between the towns of Gioia del Colle (BA) and Santeramo in Colle (BA) in Puglia, and started producing fine wines here since decades. The company grows 370 acres of vineyards at the average altitude of 450 meters. The main varietal is Primitivo, but other indigenous grapes are grown, too as Verdeca, Falanghina, Fiano, Negroamaro and Nero di Troia. The organic method of agriculture and winemaking is certified since 2005.

Negroamaro

A red wine that grows in abundance in Puglia but almost nowhere else; producing wines with rich black fruit flavors with a distinct finish of dried herbs. It’s believed the name Negroamaro, derives from the Latin and Greek words “Niger” and “Mavros” both of which mean “black” referring to the dark colour of the berries.
The grape is a dark-skinned tend to show a deep ruby-red color in youth, graduating to richer, darker red after a couple of years. Its aromatics are elegant, and young Negromaro typically displays notes of fresh red cherry, forest fruits, liquorice and tobacco.
With some age, the wines take on other aromas like dried prunes, black pepper and some herbal and botanical notes. On the palate, Negroamaro can take on an earthy character, with some spice and occasionally a chunky tannic finish.
