2016 Gianfranco Fino Salento Negramaro Jo Jeroboam (3 liter)
The Michelin guide for the restaurants, the Vini d'Italia by publisher Gambero Rosso for the best Italian wines. The 25th edition was recently published, judging on the quality of the wine and its continuity over the years. Michelin gives stars, the Gambero gives glasses. Tre Bicchieri (3 glasses) is the ultimate rating. The guide is 1000 pages thick, rated 2,350 producers and more than 1,000 wines. However, this guide remains the most important wine assessor in Italy and the wines of Gianfranco Fino have been voted the absolute number 1. Gianfranco Fino started this domain in 2004 when he bought a 50-year-old Primitivo vineyard. Despite the recent start, the domain is already a reference point in the region. The wines already have cult status among wine journalists and aficionados. Extreme quality.
Jo comes from Jonino, the Italian and Latin name for the Ionian Sea. The Manduria area that is located here is the area where the Negramaro grape comes into its own. The Jo is the very best Negramaro wine from a 40-50 year old vineyard. No pesticides, no fertilizer but optimum conditions and the art of winemaking. 9 months of wood aging gives a great full-bodied, robust wine with red and black fruit. Dark in color with hints of laurel and cacaco. Only a few thousand bottles are made of the Gianfranco Jp. This beautiful double magnum is in a beautiful wooden box.
