An outstanding wine with rich, full bodied aromas of black cherry fruit, cassis, tobacco, chocolate and orange peel. The palate is generous showing opulent, nuanced fruit, with fresh strawberry and blackcurrant notes and a hint of spice. There is a delicious savoury, meaty twist on the intense and long finish.

Founded in 1943, this family owned producer owns 600 hectares over three estates in the Salento peninsula. Vineyards cover 170 hectares, the rest are planted with a plethora of other agricultural crops, including some of the oldest olive groves in the country. Supported by viticulturalist Donato Lazzari, the Vallone sisters produce wines consistently rated amongst the best in Puglia. Agricole Vallone has two different winemaking facilities, each with the most advanced, up-to-date equipment. The Flaminio estate, near Brindisi, houses the cellar where all the wines are vinified, while the Copertino cellar, in the province of Lecce, carries out the process of maturation in oak, both large ‘botti’ and small French oak barrels. Both 2001 and 2003 vintages of Graticciaia were awarded ‘Tre Bicchieri’ in the Gambero Rosso ‘Wines of Italy’ guide, one of only 7 wines in Puglia to receive Italy’s most high profile wine accolade.
