wines according to vetrère
The cult of the earth and the loving care we give to our grapes give Vetrère wines all the colors of Bacchus: noble reds, sweet whites and fine rosés. Our labels are the result of the cultivation of autochthonous grape varieties: Negroamaro, Primitivo and Malvasia for reds; Minutolo and Chardonnay for whites. In full respect of nature, we achieve “the wine according to Vetrère”, a happy synthesis between the authentic identity of a territory, its history and the universal passion for the nectar of Bacchus.
Here is everything we have that is most precious: our labels.
Negramaro and Malvasia Riserva
It’s the great Vetrère reserve produced only in 2010 and 2015 vintages.
On the label is represented the Bruni-Ammazzalorsa family’s emblem. Inside, an enveloping and silky taste assisted by a harmonious fine acidity that gives great freshness.
Intense red color of ripe cherry and plum with sweetly spiced balsamic nuances..
Barone Pazzo is a wine of remarkable extracts, whose softness highlights a well dosed tannic mass, which gives at the same time balance and consistency.
the name comes from a plot of land adjacent to the company.
Like the sun depicted on the label, the wine is an explosion of color and flavor. Rich in color and articulate in aromas. Black fruit and spices, a smoky profile, lots of licorice and underbrush.
Malvasia Nera Riserva
“Passito” is one of the most extraordinary Italian meditation wines. Produced from a careful selection of malvasia grapes, every year it confirms its vocation for excellence thanks to a unique and inimitable relationship between sweetness and freshness. A sweet wine capable of a very long aging in bottle, emotions are assured after many years.
Flagship of the winery, Minutolo has nothing to envy to other Apulian whites. With its round and small fruit, it has the capacity of generating enviable aromas and freshness. In case of VT the grapes are left on the vine until they reach a delicate withering.
Chardonnay and Minutolo
Negroamaro Malvasia BIO
Produced with Negroamaro and Malvasia grapes, Taranta is a crisp and intense rose wine with a long aromatic persistence.
The name derives from the typical Apulian dance which, just like our wine, pinches you and makes you start dancing.
The most beloved Primitivo of the Vetrère line, it has been defined many times by wine lovers as “a juicy wine”.
Characterized by a pleasant and enveloping body on the palate, it gives an intense and fragrant aroma to the nose.
Livurni brings with it the best characteristics of the Primitivo.
Nome proveniente da uno dei terreni dell’azienda.
Colore rubino con riflessi violacei, richiami alla ciliegia e prugna, in un contesto di buona freschezza e nitidezza, in bocca presenta il tannino ben morbido e bilanciato.
The name derives from the ancient way in which they defined the sheep tracks or roads that allowed access to more landed properties. On the label is represented the map always unchanged dating back to 1600.
With its intense color and complete taste, Passaturo is one of the most loved wines of the winery.
The first certain news of the estate date back to 1600, when in Salento flourished the Baroque style, of which are preserved architectural testimonies of great value.
A winery, today more than ever, is a representative and ambassador of the territory. Its philosophy is part of a wider ecosystem made of environment, quality, culture.
Vetrère has chosen the path of clean energy and is able to meet its energy needs in complete autonomy. Electricity is produced by solar panels covering the cellar and offices, and by the generosity of the Apulian sun. A biomass boiler generates the heat the estate needs: grape seeds are dried naturally in the summer to be the natural fuel in the winter.
THE WINE CELLAR
Our wines find their home in a facility dated back to the beginning of the 1800s. The building is entirely made of tuff, a calcareous stone typical of Salento. Its star vaults and the characteristics of tuff itself allow the cellar to maintain a thermal insulation and a constant temperature, ideal conditions to preserve the organoleptic properties of wine, during refinement and storage.
