The Apollonio Wine Company has a long and deep-rooted history, and is now awarded with the title of ‘Impresa Storica d’Italia’ (historic company of Italy).  This four-generation history began in 1870, when Noè Apollonio started his adventure, followed by his son Marcello, who would later modernize the small firm.  After World War II, Marcello’s son, Salvatore, marked a turning point by introducing business management.  Today, it is the turn of the fourth generation, Marcello and Massimiliano Apollonio, to run the company.  The vineyards for their ‘Rocca dei Mori’ wines are located in the warm and generous Salento region, perfect for growing ripe, sweet fruit.
 
Hints of spice, oranges, cloves, blue and blackberries shine through on both nose and palate.  Juicy acidity, mouth-filling fruit, smooth, silky, polished tannins and a full-bodied finish.  With 10% Malvasia Nera di Lecce and 10% Malvasia Nera di Brindisi, Rocca dei Mori’s Salice Salentino possesses more complexity than many a straight Negroamaro would ; it’s unique and a truly delicious experience.
 
Food pairing:  A platter of cured Italian meats
