A GLASS OF SALENTO’S SEA An Apulian summer, the sun setting on the sea, an aperitif on the beach: this is the kaleidoscope of emotions found in a glass of Saturnino. Fruit of coastal viticulture, Saturnino is the favoured child of a tradition Tenute Rubino wanted to innovate following specific production procedures: a few hours of skin contact in the free run juice is the key to its appeal, passing on the Negroamaro grapes’ olfactory heritage which is fully expressed and balanced in the glass. The Negroamaro grapes...

AN EXTRACT OF SALENTO DEDICATED TO GREAT ENTHUSIASTS. It was the year 2000, and among the vines of Uggio, with its first harvest, Visellio was created, a single-variety Primitivo, intense and powerful. Today we celebrate the 15 harvests of this wine that time has led to become a renowned expression of Primitivo Salentino in its Brindisi version: the most elegant, more structured and austere.

This area, afterall, can boast a thousand-year-old viticultural vocation, and the Jaddico estate was once part of four-thousand-acre Romanfundus, as attested by the numerous archaeological findings unearthed here and in the nearby estate of Marmorelle. Proximity to the sea and constant ventilation, together with its sandy soils all concur in making this estate...
