Agricole Vallone is located in Puglia, Italy, and was founded in 1934 by the Vallone family. Vittoria and Maria Teresa Vallone currently own the 420 acre estate and work alongside viticulturist Donato Lazzari and wine consultant, Graziana Grassini. The estate vineyards Castelserranova, Flaminio and Iore are located in the Brindisi province and are planted on well draining calcareous, limestone and clay soils. Negroamaro, Montepulciano, Susumaniello and Fiano, Ottavianello, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay are planted at the estate. Agricole Vallone has two winemaking facilities. The wines are vinified at the Flaminio estate, near Brindisi and cellared at Copertino, in the Lecce province. Maturation is driven by vintage and variety stainless steel, small oak barrels and large oak botti are used.

Tasting notes
A complex wine offering pronounced aromas of black cherries, damson plum and licorice, the palate is rich and velvety with lush tannins and notes of sweet spice.

Technical notes
Graticciaia is produced from late harvested Negroamaro grapes that are grown on vines that are 70-80 years old. The fruit is dried on grati, or mesh mats for about a month to concentrate flavors before pressing. The must is slowly fermented at controlled temperatures and then aged for 12 months in small French oak barrels.

Food pairing
Aged cheese, braised meat, roasted red meat, game, grilled lamb, dishes with goose liver, dishes with truffles and even chocolate.
