Vinification - Salento (Salentu in local dialect) is the south-eastern extremity of the Puglia region, sometimes described as the "heel" of the Italian "boot". The area is rich in vineyards and olive groves and the typical willow trees that give the name to the wine. After an accurate selection, the grapes are vinified following the traditional method without the addition of any concentrated must. The primary fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature. Very good to be drunk young it develops into velvety softness with further ageing in bottle.
