Apollonio Copertino, Puglia Italy
A beautiful blend of native grape varieties Negroamaro , Sangiovese , Montepulciano and the rare Malvasia Nera.
Intense ruby red colour, rich fragrances of cherries, plums and chocolate on the nose follow onto a lush meaty palate with loads of black fruits and chocolate edges combined with well integrated tannins and an earthy sweetness.
The Apollonio Wine Company has a long and deep-rooted history, and is now awarded with the title of ‘Impresa Storica d’Italia’ (historic company of Italy). This four-generation history – always evolving yet remaining faithful to itself – began in 1870, when Noè Apollonio started his adventure, followed by his son Marcello, who would later modernize the small firm.
After World War II, Marcello’s son, Salvatore, marked a turning point by introducing business management. Today, it is the turn of the fourth generation to run the company: Marcello and Massimiliano Apollonio have succeeded in exporting a label that is a byword for first-rate quality and trustworthiness all over the world.
