Zacinto – Negroamaro

This wine is dedicated to Zacinto, the massero (the person who managed everything, especially the quality of the grapes) for Masseria Cuturi. The Negroamaro varietal made his favorite wine and he secretly made special batches just for himself and hid the barrels. His legend lives on in this deep, dark wine with fine sweet wild cherry and notes of anise, violets and wild flowers, harmoniously blend with the mineral and marine flavors of this terroir.
