Fabulous flagship red of this hugely applauded Puglian co-operative created by Angelo Maci in 1989 to save the region’s ancient vines and the growers’ livelihood. This is their top red – part air-dried grapes and barrel matured, it’s dense and hefty.
"Aromas of black cherry, dried blackberry, spice, cola, herb and cinnamon stick rise from the glass"
Monica Larner for 2010 Wine Advocate
Growing up in rural Puglia with his grandfather, Angelo Maci developed a huge love of the land. He trained as a winemaker, then decided his mission was to save the region's ancient vines and winemaking traditions. He wanted farmers to receive proper recompense for the superb quality of their low yield grapes. For that reason, he set up the Cantine Due Palme, initially with just 15 growers. Today there are over 1000, and it’s been named ‘Italian Winery of the Year’ three times. Angelo has been named ‘Winemaker of the Year’ twice, and won a Lifetime Achievement award. This is their flagship red, reserved under this special label for Confratelli. It’s a luscious red – mostly Negroamaro, with a portion air-dried like they do for pricy Amarone.
