Cantina Sampietrana wines are the result of careful transformation of the autochthonous grape varieties “Negroamaro, Primitivo and Malvasia”.
Among the grapes used there are also the ancient Susumaniello, the traditional Aglianico, Montepulciano and Lambrusco, as well as the international Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay, Fiano and Verdeca.
In the upper Salento it has found an almost perfect habitat to grow properly and produce healthy grapes of excellent quality for winemaking.
In the younger versions, the color is ruby with clear violet reflections, almost dark and not very transparent; this color is shown off in a stronger way in the case of aging in wood, a process that also turns the chromatic hue towards garnet.
The wine obtained is ruby red in color with violet reflections.
Il vino che si ottiene è di colore rosso rubino con riflessi violacei.
It can give a dry wine of great character and, side by side with blends of other vines, contributes to rounding off the characteristics, diluting their angularity, so much so that it appears to be mentioned in the specification of many designations of origin.
It has medium-sized bunches of conical shape, with tight density, of short size and without wings. The berries are large, very pruinose and with thick black skins with violet veins.
Oval in shape, the berries are very leathery. Productivity is very high and must be limited with drastic pruning and suitable breeding systems, little expanded.
It is cultivated as a “bush vine” for quality winemaking, but also with the counter-espalier it is able to give excellent results.
To make up for the drought, the grape also likes a good presence of clay which manages to retain water flowing underground.
The pure Negroamaro provides wines with a characteristic ruby red color tending to garnet, more intense in the reserve type, with a typical olfactory range of the breed wine, with a strong presence of dark flowers and berries while in the mouth it is full, harmonious and intense.
It is particularly suited for “rosé” processes where well-made spices, fruit aromas (raspberries – pomegranate) and floral touches of spiced rose from cinnamon emerge. Negroamaro currently offers the best rosé wines of the peninsula.
