Moros, Salice Salentino: an Apulian treasure.
In the heart of the Salice Salentino appellation, in the municipality of Guagnano, the Moros cuvée is born after each harvest. This cuvée is 95% made from an autochthonous grape variety found nowhere else and which is a treasure of Puglia: Negroamaro. Produced from fifty-year-old vines, it brings character and structure to the wine. It is blended with Black Malvasia, which adds fruitiness and deliciousness to this cuvée. The vines are planted on clay-limestone soils, providing the balance needed for optimal ageing, the hallmark of great wines.
Cantina Moros: a vision by Claudio Quarta.
Claudio Quarta, a distinguished winegrower from the Puglia region who already owned Tenute di Emera, took over this estate with one watchword in mind: excellence at all costs. The Cantina Moros, a former winery that had fallen into disrepair, was bought by Claudio Quarta and work was undertaken to bring this historic site back into use. With a simple vision: One Estate, One Plot, One Wine; Claudio made the uncompromising choice to produce a unique and exceptional wine in the heart of the Puglia wine region.
