Description:

Ageing: 18 months in small oak barrel, 12 month in big oak barrel, 6 months in bottle. NERO is the master piece of Conti Zecca. It was born out of an intuition that made Conti Zecca brothers introduce, in the eighties, some selected clones of cabernet sauvignon. 15 years of excellent qualitative results later, it was decided to create a blend of wine made from Negramaro grapes, coming from the best of production. Nero was commercialized for the first time in 1999 with the 1997 vintage. The vintage 1998 was presented with the definitive blend that characterizes it to present day: 70% negramaro and 30% cabernet sauvignon. It was a great success with its recognition by all the experts who immediately identified in this wine a great new element in the regional and national wine scene which represented, in fact, marriage between a native Apulian vine negroamaro and an international vine, cabernet sauvignon which enhances and complements the quality.

The Nero’s qualitative evolution, from 1998 to 2009, has constantly been positive and it won for more than 10 years the prestigious awards of TRE BICCHIERI – GAMBERO ROSSO.
