San Marzano Negroamaro “F” Puglia

“We searched long and hard among the oldest Negramaro vineyards of Salento for the perfect grapes to express the soul of this noble vine. We selected only three vineyards and “F” is the name we chose to give them. “F” as in Feudi di San Marzano. A part of our history, this letter has become a mark of quality for Negramaro, a symbol of our passion for this ancient and challenging grape.” 1st Best Red Wine of Italy (98 Points) by Luca Maroni, wine critic
