Agricole Vallone is located in Puglia, Italy, and was founded in 1934 by the Vallone family. Vittoria and Maria Teresa Vallone currently own the 420 acre estate and work alongside viticulturist Donato Lazzari and wine consultant, Graziana Grassini. The estate vineyards Castelserranova, Flaminio and Iore are located in the Brindisi province and are planted on well draining calcareous, limestone and clay soils. Negroamaro, Montepulciano, Susumaniello and Fiano, Ottavianello, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay are planted at the estate. Agricole Vallone has two winemaking facilities. The wines are vinified at the Flaminio estate, near Brindisi and cellared at Copertino, in the Lecce province. Maturation is driven by vintage and variety stainless steel, small oak barrels and large oak botti are used.

Tasting notes
A powerful and complex bouquet of blackberry fruit, tobacco, earth and leather mingle with notes of dried cherry and savory herbs. Medium-firm tannins give structure and length to the finish.

Technical notes
Negroamaro was aged in stainless steel and then racked to Slavonian oak barrels where it aged for 6-8 months. The wine was racked for a second time before aging in concrete tanks for 12 months.

Food pairing
Roast meat, game, poultry and main courses
