Conte Carlo Guarini Wines
it's origins are elsewhere: the first ancestors arrived in Puglia with the Normans in around the year one thousand A.D. Given the important size of the property, viticulture is obviously only part of the story, covering approximately ten percent of the land.
The wine production is accompanied by that of extra virgin olive oil from the over twenty thousand olive trees on the property, plus a range of quality food products, made with its market garden produce, bearing the brand name of Le Masserie del Duca.
However wine is of central importance and based on the classic grapes of this part of Italy, thus the Negroamaro, Malvasia Nera, and Primitivo are well represented in the farm’s range of wines, though not to the total exclusion of other varieties: in fact thirty thousand bottles of Sauvignon Blanc are also produced, perhaps in a tribute to their French origins.
The range is completed by excellent wines like Malìa Malvasia Nera, the Boemond Primitivo, ‘900 Primitivo, the Negroamaro-based organic Nativo Rosso del Salento and the white Taersia, obtained from the vinification of the Negroamaro red grapes, and, best of all, the Primitivo Vigne Vecchie, with a structure that allows it to be aged in small barrels.
