Primitivo IGP Puglia Bio Organic Red Wine
Cantonovo is the most authentic expression of the hills of the Murgia of Bari hanging in the balance between the Adriatic and the Ionian Sea. From the respect of nature typical for an organic wine to the vinous aromas typical ofa mellow red. The freshness of the red fruits seduces at the first sip. The name celebrates the cycle of nature evoked by the four seasons that name the chapters of “Canto Novo” written by Gabriele D’Annunzio.
