CUPONE Salice Salentino DOP Rosso Riserva is bottled only in years that guarantee exceptional quality. Its name derives from the district Cupone which is perhaps the most mysterious place of the fief of Guagnano. The toponym Cupone probably originates from the particularity of the soil rich in depressions, chasms and underground rivers. For the production of this wine, Negroamaro and Black Malvasia grapes are used, produced by 50-year-old sapling plants grown in medium-textured soils in the countryside of Guagnano. The harvest is done manually in the second decade of September and the grapes macerate and ferment for two weeks. The resulting wine is aged for 24 months of which 12 months in 5hl French oak barrels.

Bouquet CUPONE has a compound scent and never exaggerated. To the nose, it releases hints of nutmeg and Mediterranean herbs..
Flavour On the palate, it is warm, persuasive, soft but maintains freshness and an acidic note out of the ordinary. The tannins are linear and barely pronounced and balsamic and black cherry jam notes prevail in the mouth. Long and persistent finish that immediately recalls another sip.
