2009 Negroamaro Vecchie Vigne, Alberelli L'Astore Masseria, Puglia

Description

The flagship wine of the L’Astore Masseria range; it’s an old vine (‘vecchia vigna’) Negroamaro from a single vineyard in San Pietro in Lama, close to Lecce. Planted in 1947, this free-standing, ‘alberello’ vineyard produces a tiny crop of strawberry, coulis, kirsch-like fruit that’s deliciously suave and fluid. Aged predominantly in spicy 25hl oak, only a few hundred cases were made. The essence of Negroamaro! Drinking 2013 - 2020.

About this WINE

L'Astore Masseria, Puglia

L'Astore Masseria, Puglia

The history of this model Puglian estate mirrors that of the province, being built on the foundations of olive groves, grape growing and a limestone bedrock. Paolo Benegiamo’s medical family have owned the 100-hectare L’Astore Masseria property near Cutrofiano on the Salento peninsula since the 1930s, but it was not until 2005, with the demise of the bulk market, that their first commercial label came out. Bottle production of 80,000 per year is now at twothirds of capacity, focusing on the indigenous varieties Negroamaro, Primitivo and Malvasia Bianca. They have been certified organic since 2010.
