Polvanera / Aglianico / 750mL
In 2003, following a long family tradition in Agriculture, Filippo Cassano started an ambitious project aimed at increasing the reputation of ‘Primitivo’ and other native grapes used for the production of quality wines in his area. For this reason, he bought and restored an old manor farm in the rural area of Marchesana, near Gioia del Colle, with significant plantings of remarkable old Primitivo bush vines dating back to between 1860 and 1880.
The term POLVANERA derives from the typical dark colour of the fields surrounding the manor farm. Next to it is a modern wine cellar with a traditional stone-built tasting space.
