Schola Sarmenti, a stunning winery with soaring ceilings sculpted from local tuff and lecce stone, dates from the mid-nineteenth century and is run by the Marra and Calabrese families. The vineyards are farmed organically and within sight of the warm waters of the Adriatic. Schola Sarmenti practises "green harvesting", where a portion of the immature crop is sacrificed (i.e. picked and discarded) mid-season to increase the ripeness and quality of the remaining bunches. It also uses the ancient Puglian vine training system, Alberello.

A well-spiced, medium-bodied red that layers light, creamy tannins with flavors of pureed cherry, dried fig, wild herb and minerally earth, showing iron accents. Fresh and chewy on the finish. Drink now through 2023.
