The Finer Details
What does our Somm say?
This Negroamaro is such a pleasure to drink, its rich flavour and aromas strengthened by the fine minerality of the vineyard’s soil and through the careful organic farming of the Zullo family of Tenuta Viglione.
Like most Southern Italian red wines, this drop shines most with Southern Italian cuisine. The spicy and intense notes of this wine mean you’d either want to pair it as an Aperitivo (think strong, aged cheeses and sun dried tomatoes) or make sure your meal has some bold flavours, so it wasn’t overwhelmed by this delicious drop.
Rich pasta sauces, Florentine steaks, roasted quail or really good quality sausages are sure winners when it comes to accompanying this wine. It also loves to be enjoyed with flavoursome vegetable dishes such as casseroles, rice-stuffed capsicum or roasted veggies in a red wine jus.
As you can see, this wine lends itself to the weekend BBQ warriors, AND the planned Italian themed dinner party.
Optimal Serving Temp: 18-20 Degrees Celsius
Drinking Age: Drink Now to 3 years
Tenuta Viglione Farm was founded with viticulture of the Zullo Family and their passion for pugliese wines. The Winery was born from the desire to nurture the enormous wine-growing potential of the area between the municipalities of Gioia del Colle (Ba) and Santeramo in Colle (Ba) of Puglia. Tenuta Viglione has been producing quality wines in these territories for decades.
At 480m above sea level, the limestone soil is covered in pebbles and features remnants of sea shells due to their vicinity to the coast. This, along with the hospitable climate of Puglia, allows the grape growth to flourish, and the end wine products of this winery to stand out with their flavours, complexity, minerality and aroma.
The Zullo family produces characteristic wines of the area, whilst using techniques and the most productive & advanced methodologies – from the context of caring for land and grape, to the processing of the wine, the transformative phase, and its arrival to the bottle.
After many years, driven by his passion for the art of good wine, love for his own land and an attachment to the family and its winemaking origins, Giovanni Zullo (third generation of the Zullo family) was honoured to step up and continue to deepen the quality of all aspects of Tenuta Viglione wines.
Most recently, Giovanni has worked tirelessly to a process of restructuring and modernization of the ancient Masseria “viglione” which today represents the new characteristic setting of the family Farm. Recently the winery has become a certified Organic Wine producer.
