Communal drinking sessions, simposia, were among the important social forms of ancient Greece.

The “simpotic” gathering took place at a specific moment during special occasions: poems or convivial odes were to be recited at the conclusion of the banquet. The simpotic poetry added to the pleasure of the convivium and the banqueters drank according to the directions of the simposiarch.

In order to do honour to the table it was necessary to drink in a measured way and subsequently enter into intellectual conversation.

LE BRACI Salento Igp Rosso Negroamaro

The grapes come from old alberello-trained vines of Negroamaro, picked late. The surmaturation, or slight raisining of the grapes, gives the wine a complex structure. This is a wine which develops all its potential character during refinement in small barrels, a process which stabilizes the colour and softens the astringency of the tannins: the wine acquires a fresh aroma and a regal sumptuosity.

It features a sumptuous and elegant mouth, balanced by perfect acidity Intense colour with purple tints, tending to garnet.. Its perfumes of flowers and fruit are attractively evident: mint, plum, very subtle notes of small fruits, liquorice, vanilla and spices. The softness of its long taste closes with a pleasant vein of bitterness characteristic of the Negroamaro from which it comes.

Company details

The name Severino Garofano has close ties to the revival in southern Italian wine making: indeed he is among those enologists who, first culturally then productively, helped map out the path which lead to the revival of quality wines in the Salento.

Today the company, is run by Severino’s children Stefano and Renata.They are carrying on the business with the same commitment and philosophy as their father showed, based on a deep knowledge of the area and that translates into a real passion for the Salento vine par excellence, the Negroamaro, which is a source of inspiration and symbol which characterizes the Azienda and its wines.
