THE VINEYARD

The winery project of Tenuta Corallo is born from a union of passions. The love for the sea and the passion for the world of wine in 2010 move Enzo and Gabriella Marti entrepreneurs for over 25 years in the tourism sector of Salento, to detect an estate of nearly 13 hectares near the “Baia dei Turchi” (Bay of Turks), along the Adriatic coast which unites the Alimini Lakes to Otranto. After a few years, they decided to implant a vineyard, cultivated in organic farming, separated from the sea by a thin line of Mediterranean scrub, useful especially in winter to act as a natural barrier against the cold mistral wind blowing from the Otranto Channel.

Primitivo, Negroamaro, Malvasia Nera, Aleatico and Fiano are the typical vines of the Salento area that have been planted.


THE WINERY

The brand new cellar is on 2 levels, ground floor and basement floor. The first houses a small showroom and a laboratory, as well as a room of about 180 square meters where are located steel refrigerated tanks that serve to refine the wines. On the outside terrace there is a 100 quintal rotary tank used for the fermentation of the reds. In the basement there is a barrel of about 100 square meters for the refinement of wine in the wood. This environment is also kept at adequate temperature and humidity. By appointment we host groups of visitors for the tasting of our wines.

Fiano with the scents of the summer

CHORA FIANO

Clear straw yellow with golden reflections. Floral aromas of acacia and mimosa and ripe fruit like peach, mango, pineapple with a grassy bottom in the finish. In the mouth it is dry, warm and soft, and the tasting spreads on the palate in the wake of a long, fresh-flavored trail. Vinification in steel. To combine with fish dishes, first courses such as risotto with seafood and soups, and main courses like fish and grilled white meat.

The colors and scents of passion for summer

MATRIA NEGROAMARO

Wonderful bright cerasuolo. Bouquet of wild strawberry mixed with cherry, alternating with menthol scent. On the palate the wine is warm and soft, supported in the sip by freshness and flavor coming from its closeness to the Adriatic Sea. In the end, the return of fruity tones gives Matrìa all the characteristics of an ideal wine for first and second dishes of fish.
