At an altitude of 450 m a.s.l., in the Alta Murgia National Park, Cantine Carpentiere have revived the centuries-old tradition of wine growing in the Puglia region, tending to the vines spread over the hills in front of the castle built by Frederick II.
The high-trained and head-trained vines, grown on limestone soil, embody the very best of the cultivars native to the south of Italy and the finest international varieties: Nero di Troia, Bombino Nero, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The karst terrain affords fresh, mineral qualities to our wines, while the microclimate, characterised by sharp changes in temperatures between day and night, makes it possible to preserve the acid component of the grapes, ensuring the wine is balanced, firmly structured and stands up well to ageing.
Our work in the vineyard is aimed at making the most of the distinctive, authentic characteristics of the vine and the terroir, and the harvests are always scheduled to take place when the grapes are perfectly ripe, so as to make the very best of what nature has to offer. The production of our grapes is compliant with strict organic farming standards.
