L’Archetipo, Niuru Maro, Puglia, Italy 2017
Classified as Negroamaro IGP Salento from Puglia in Southern Italy, Negroamaro typically made rustic, big wines. The Archetipo wines are made with a gentle extraction method, focussing on expression of the chalky, limestone soil of the area and whilst full flavoured and satisfying, they are vibrant and energetic in style. Unfined, unfiltered, aged in old oak and with minimal sulphur added. Farming is biodynamic and organic, with wild yeast, spontaneous fermentation in the winery.
