Matané wines are from Salento, Puglia’s most southern province, located right up against the Ionian and Adriatic seas. In fact, the gorgeous vineyards are windswept by salty breezes coming off the sea. The area’s amazing palette of colors – with its blue-green waters and deep red soils – and dynamic sensations give Salentino wines an extra layered depth, unique to the region.
The wine was named for its owners – Maria, Tara and Neil – who partnered with a team of experts to make a wine that fully represents this region.
Pure Negroamaro, native to Puglia. Inky, rustic, fragrant and earthy. A lovely accompaniment to hearty dishes. No oak aging.
