Masseria Tagaro Pignataro Negroamaro
Locorotondo is a small town in the region of Puglia in southern Italy. It is situated in the Valle d'Itria, a green stretch of countryside dotted with the famous whitewashed cone-roofed trulli houses. It is officially one of the Borghi più belli d'Italia, the most beautiful villages in Italy. As well as its picturesque appearance the town is also known for its wine production.
Winemakers for three generations, the Lorusso family of Masseria Tagaro produces wines of the highest quality and elegance that faithfully express the characteristics of the terroir. Their Pignataro wines have a very small production, with wines made from Primitive, Negroamaro, and Susumaniello, representing the most classic styles of Puglia.
20 year-old Negroamaro vines yield fruit that is hand-harvested and fermented in temperature-controlled tanks before being moved into barrel for 5 months. The result is a wine that has plenty of body and fruit, but is light enough to drink during these baking summer months! A backbone of spice holds the fruit together. Come in and taste this Puglian treat!
