For over 4000 years grapes have been prospering on the Salentine Peninsula, thanks to the devoted attention, the loyalty and the intelligence of the wine-growers. Without this ever constant care - due to the concern man has always had for wine as a noble drink and a devine gift -without the perseverance and the love for the soil, much land would have remained waste and covered by forests as it was thousands of years ago. The Phoenicians, and later the Greek, followed by Basilian monks, gave the grape and wine a flourisch which has no equal in the cultivation of other plants. The Taurino family have always been wine - growers and the beart of their farm is the estate "Notarpanaro" which in the last century was known as "Notare Panaro". In a legal deed dated November 22th, 1817 which concerned a change in tithes, one can read: "...the land Notare Panaro, part of the territory of Mesagne, is governed according to the tithe system. The tithe must be paid to the Most Exellent Family Mugnozza, and in their name Mrs. di Virgiliis changes the income of the foresaid one hundred and eighty - four and a half "tomoli", into a monetary rent, just as prescribed in the royal decrees of June 20 th, 1808 and January 17th,1810 Mr. Longo was offered, in the name of the foresaid, thirty silverducats a year, to be paid on July 15th every year.For the landowners this rent is to be free from any deductions or levies already decreed or still to be decreed by the Sovereign..." The struggle to bring the soil from what was once a wild and abbandoned land under cultivation,the planing of wineyards, the loving care for the grapes, the choice of the grapes and the wine-marking,is due to the Taurino family which has dedicated all its zeal to preserving the traditional skills in the blending of the wines, even if today modern process have been introduced onto the premises,where the very best wines if the Salento are kept.In a few years,with the passionate interest of the ancient vintners,receptive to technological process and keeping fait with traditional standars of quality, the Taurino family has succeeded in making the red, rose' and white wines of the Salento known and appreciated all over the world. These wines, which are of excellent quality include also those protected by the "certificate of controlled origin" granted to the lands where the "Brindisi" and "Salice Salentino" wines come from.

Composed primarily of the Negroamaro grape variety, the Notarpanaro glitters by its originality and generosity. Relieved from good flavors of cherries and spices with its profile simply quite rustic, which gives it a good personality. All the great taste of southern Italy bottled!

Ruby red in color; very elegant bouquet with aromas of tobacco and licorice. The palate displays ripened red berries, anise and licorice.

The question mark beside the score of the 1999 Notarpanaro relates to its controversial late harvest Amarone-like notes along with a touch of volatile acidity. Its big, spicy, earthy nose is reminiscent of burning tobacco intermixed with aged beef, ashes, and sweet cheese. Not for everybody, it is an authentic, rustic southern Italian red made in an old style. Drink this fascinating effort over the next 2-3 years.

Deep red. Reticent aromas of red currant, roasted herbs and exotic spices. Sweet and fat but vinous; full and generous. The slightly roasted cherry and raspberry flavors are nicely shaped by ripe acids that also extend the finish. Big but not heavy, with rather fine tannins.

The 1990 Notarpanaro (which also tastes like the Italian version of Zinfandel) possesses dry almond-like flavors to go along with the weedy tobacco, licorice, and berry fruit. Spicy, round, and generously-endowed, with a late-harvest, Amarone-like character, it should be drunk over the next several years.

The barrique-aged (one-third new) 1995 Notarpanaro is a dense, rich, full-bodied wine displaying licorice, dried fruit, pepper, truffle, and spice characteristics. Filled with personality, it possesses rustic tannin, but plenty of depth as well as a chewy, muscular, robust finish. It should drink well for 4-5 years.

The outstanding 1997 Notarpanaro was fashioned from an identical blend [to the 1999 Salice Salentino: 85% Negramaro and 15% Malvasia Nero], but spent over three years in French oak, of which one-third was new. It exhibits a distinctive earthy nose of creosote, scorched earth, pepper, spice, black cherries, and licorice. Full-bodied, well-balanced, and cleanly made, with abundant glycerin, power, and richness, it would be a perfect foil for leg of lamb. Consume it over the next 5-6 years.
