Every wine is unique: this is the philosophy by which we work at Castel di Salve. Over the years we have learnt to appreciate more and more the qualities of Salento’s local varieties, whose king is Negroamaro. We choose the best clones, respectful farming techniques, and we pay attention to every detail of the refinement process.
We are firmly convinced that the grape variety should be recognizable in the wine. Only then can each wine transmit its own character and possess a distinctive personality. On this ground we built different processing methods for each wine designed to enhance its unique character and flavor.
Nine of our twelve labels are pure, single varietal wines. Apart from Armécolo which local tradition considers as a ‘quasi single-variety’ it is almost considered a mono-variety, the two blends we created are: Lama del Tenente and Priante are blends. ‘Uncork’ them here with just a click. You will find information about the processing methods and wine-tasting notes for each wine. Then if you don’t want to stop here, contact us. You can order ours wines or book a visit here.
