About the wine

The name celebrates the years that have passed since Accardo Guarini, Count of Valesio, in 1114 cultivated his vineyard on the Pìutri estate, as documented in a coeval parchment. Obtained from carefully selected grapes and harvested in the third week of September, it is vinified in ancient cisterns dug into the cement-plastered cellar floor equipped with temperature control to improve fermentation temperatures. A long-lived wine, elegant, rich, and intense, it expresses with great finesse the best qualities that the famous vine of the Salento peninsula can offer when it is cultivated with love and competence in highly suited soils.

The Duca di Carlo Guarini estate is a long-standing family farm. The wines come from native Salento vines vinified in red, rosé, and white. All in purity and certified organic, made with competence and sincerity, always looking for the best expression of the land, respecting the environment and consumers.

Tasting Notes: Ruby red in color, the nose expresses its elegance with balsamic tones and small red fruits. Soft on the palate, with a good balance between fine tannins and acidity, it offers great sensorial persistence.
