´Graticciaia´ · Salento Rosso IGT 2016, Agricole Vallone, Puglia

This red wine, made exclusively from Negroamaro grapes, is an Italian original of international fame: the particular production process is reminiscent of Amarone and Sforzato, with the grapes dried outdoors on the kiln, without the use of technology and following ancestral methods. Still dry, this straw wine has been one of the most interesting red wine specialties of Puglia for decades, with concentrated aromas of Amarena cherries and some cigar box. Still dry on the palate with lush berry fruit, while balanced and harmoniously structured. The name of this wine legend is Graticciaia. - Gerardo [TS06/17]

"Graticciaia is not just one of Italy's best wines, but also an historic one since it clearly brought into focus the up-until-then hidden qualities of the negroamaro grape. Uniquely creamy, with beyond-velvety tannins and loaded with aromas and flavours of strawberry jam, cherries macerated in alcohol and sage. Simply an exceptional wine." - Ian Domenico D'agata (Guida ai Miglori Vini d'Italia)

"Sparkling ruby with a slight garnet sheen. Opens with notes of dried mushrooms, some orange peel, fragrant, then shows fine notes of blackberries and dried herbs. Compact and dense on the palate, opens with dense tannin, of amazing elegance, fine red berries and fine melt characterize the wine in approach and course, long finish." - Falstaff

"The 2009 Graticciaia is one of the most distinctive wines to emerge from Puglia today. Fruit is sourced from ancient alberello or head-pruned vines and is air-dried on straw mats (called 'graticci' in Italian) for up to three weeks. Stylistically, the wine shares many of the dried fruit characteristics of Amarone from Northern Italy. This expression of Negroamaro delivers dark fruit aromas of prune, raisin, scorched earth and burnt almond shell. It ages in Allier and Never barrique for one year. The charred notes are very strong and come in stark contrast to the very noticeable jammy sweetness that this wine delivers to the palate. The finish is chewy, soft and very ripe.

Vallone is responsible for the only 'aia' wine of Puglia this is loosely inspired by the great 'aia' wines of Tuscany (Solaia, Ornellaia and Sassicaia) in terms of intensity and pedigree. But the winemaking methodology is completely different here. Vallone's Graticciaia is made with air-dried fruit similar to Amarone della Valpolicella. It represents a very special expression that will appeal to those who appreciate an extra dose of sunshine in their hot-climate red wines." - Robert Parkers Wine Advocate
