With his Tenuta Viglione, Giovanni Zullo has, in just a few years, managed to become a leading figure in Apulia’s vine-growing/winemaking scene. His vineyards are situated in Murgia Barese at about 450 meters above sea level, at the highest point in the Gioia del Colle DOC zone.
The soil here is a characterized by thin layers of mixed ‘red earth’, calcareous and silica rock, and gives rise to wines defined by their typicity, as well as freshness.
The 2016 Negroamaro is well-crafted, with tones of ripe, dark fruit that are well-supported by grip.
