Information

Tasting Note

A deep ruby red in color, it offers fascinating complexity on the nose: from floral scents of violets to rich fruity ones of black and sour cherries and strawberries, along with underlying balsamic notes, licorice and aromatic herbs. On the palate it is broad, full-bodied and fruity, and wins you over with its polished tannins and vibrant finish, sustained by an attractive fresh vein of acidity.

Vineyard

Masseria Surani is the result of Tommasi family passion for wine and their desire to discover and select the very best of Italian wines. The heart of the property is a manor house called Masseria dating back to the early 1900s. The vineyards stretch as far as the eye can see, surrounding the entire Masseria, warmed by the sun of Apulia. With 55 hectares of vineyards grown in accordance with the principles of organic viticulture, the philosophy of Surani relies on the idea of producing fine wines and enhancing the production of indigenous varieties such as Primitivo, Negroamaro and Fiano, preserving natural resources and biodiversity.
