The Terra Sasso is undoubtedly a farmer of the past: it has the strength of it. Born from a blend of native grapes such as Negroamaro and Primitivo. It has an intense ruby red color. The nose is fruity and balsamic, and contains the flavors of the red earth of the Gargano. A timeless wine, with a robust body elegantly balanced by the mineral sapidity of the soil, recalls the barren and terraced landscapes of dry-stone walls.
