Salice Salentino Puteus Mocavero Magnum, Negramaro, Malvasia Nera rich, round soft, a wine you cannot fail to enjoy. The Riserva Salice called 'Puteus' is an example of top Puglian wine making. In this wine all the heat of the climate comes through in the glass with big dark black fruits, notes of mocha, cinnamon, vanilla, toast and spice all come through on the sumptuous palate. The wine unfolds in layers in the glass and the weight is held in check by crisp acidity and firm tannins. This is a rich red wine for hearty meals and is a great taste of the south. In magnum it will age beautifully for up to 10 years or so but it also makes a fantastic centre piece for your table when you have people over. Remember wine tastes better from Magnum!

Francesco Mocavero, what a guy. When I first met him, he barely spoke, when asked about his wine, he said, 'e molto buono', that was it! But after a while his personality shone through as sure as the sun rises over his vines into a cloudless sky almost every day on his small wine farm in Lecce. A mild-mannered gentleman with impeccable style, Francesco understands the importance of picking early to preserve freshness in the wines from an otherwise overbaked region. He picks the Primitivo sometimes as early as the second week in August and by golly, it is fresh but at the same time, soft, full of fruit and with the characteristic dark cherry sweetness. Francesco is not a natural wine maker. He works his vineyard in as healthy a way as he can whilst ensuring a decent crop of grapes each year. All his wines offer great value for money and tend to suit most palates being some of the most approachable wines we sell. If you like red wine, try Mocavero, if you want a red for a gift then Mocavero is always a safe bet. Francesco is just like that, he is a man who likes to please. It is the Puglian way.
