Negroamaro, Caiaffa, 75cl
Caiaffa works to the principle of synergistic agriculture. They believe that nature is man's greatest collaborator and that it is nature which maintains balance. Certified organic, they do not use insecticides or pesticides in order to encourage a balanced ecosystem and work at one with nature.
They are especially protective of the insects which live on and around their vines, they work in harmony with them and have established a symbiotic relationship in which both parties benefit. For the bugs make it possible for micro-oxygenation and they provide the means for nutrients needed by the vine to make passage through the soil. This is reflective in their branding and their packaging.
Caiaffa is located in Cerignola, a coastal town in the beautiful Tavoliere Delle Puglie, northern Puglia. The Tavoliere area was once completely submerged in seawater which has influenced a very special climate, an abundance of flora and fauna. The soils here are rich in limestone and the vines benefit from the mild Mediterranean weather. Through these wines, you can truly taste the authentic flavour of the land. The grape varieties the estate works with are Primitivo, Negroamaro, Uva di Troia and Fiano.
Amazingly fresh nose, more vegetal and spice than fruit. Smooth and easy drinking with good length. Three months in oak gives a nice rounded balance to this super wine from Puglia.
