HISTORICAL AND TECHNICAL NOTES
Canonico takes its name from a district near Cellino San Marco where one of our storage cellars is sited on land which in the early 20th Century was owned by Angelo Maci’s grandfather, Ettamiano.
The ancient Negroamaro vine has uncertain origins although it was probably introduced by the Greeks from the Ionian region. The name derives from the dialect words “Niuru maru” and then changed to Negro Amaro meaning “Bitter Black“ because of the black skins and tannic character. A very versatile grape it can also be vinified as a white, rose or even sparkling wine; the purity of the fruit is it’s hallmark.
Our Negroamaro is grown on the espalier training system and is harvested in late September. The grapes are macerated in horizontal rotating vats and then aged for 4 months in French oak barrels before a final period in bottle. The skins of Negroamaro grapes are especially rich in polyphenols including Resveratrol an antioxidant with health benefits.
