You will like to know that…
The "pumo" is one of Puglia's most famous lucky charms. The accessory - a statue whose shape resembles that of a pinecone, but is actually inspired by acanthus leaves - is displayed as a decoration for buildings, gardens and balconies. When given as a gift, the pumo is a good omen, especially if you have to start a new project.
The clay with which these objects are made is the same clay from which the vines grow, and which gives the Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera di Brindisi grapes their peculiar characteristics. The Pumo Salice Salentino 2017 by San Marzano is an intense wine, with hints of cherry, plum, spices and Mediterranean herbs. Although it has a robust body, it is particularly fresh.
It should be noted that the 2017 vintage has entered the Annuario dei Migliori Vini Italiani 2021 by Luca Maroni with a score of 94 points.
