Tommasi’s passion for wine and the desire to discover and select the very best in Italian winemaking brought them to Puglia. Around 80 hectares of land have been purchased in Manduria, in the Salento area, one of the finest zones for the cultivation of the Primitivo grape, where viticulture has extremely ancient origins, dating back to the time of Magna Graecia.
The property, which lies about 6 km from the Ionian coast, also includes a manor house called “Masseria” dating back to the early 1900s, a typical complex of agricultural buildings which originally acted as an organisational centre for all of the farming operations. Following refurbishment, the Masseria now houses a winery of 700 sqm complete with vinification and maturation facilities.
A blend of 50% Primtivo, 30% Negoamaro & 20% Cabernet, Intense ruby red in colour with aromas of red fruits and black cherry on the nose. Sapid, with balanced acidity, soft tannins and a full body.
