Description


Tuffetto is the name of an aquatic bird that winters and nests in the Cillarese Park’s protected area at the gates of Brindisi. The Negroamaro vineyards are located 400 metres from that natural habitat in Tenute Lu Spada estate. Tuffetto wine proceeds from the noble grapes of this harvest, processed through ancient agricultural traditions that produce this rosè wine. The proximity to the Adriatic Sea, together with the lagoon’s fresh water bestow light, color, aromas and flavours which make this rosè unique.
