Salice Salentino Negroamaro Riserva is a DOC wine whose production is allowed in the provinces of Brindisi and Lecce. The Salice Salentino DOC denomination was established with a Ministerial Decree dated 8/4/1976 then modified in 1994. Grapes of other black grape varieties suitable for cultivation in Puglia for the homogeneous production area "Salento-Arco Ionico" registered in the National Register of vine varieties for wine grapes can also contribute to its production, alone or jointly. This was approved with D.M. 7 May 2004 and subsequent updates, reported in attachment 1 of this specification, in a business environment, to a maximum extent of 25% of the surface registered in the vineyard register. This wine is made exclusively from Negroamaro grapes (100%) and the name of the Cupone vineyard probably originates from the particularity of the soil rich in hollows, chasms and underground rivers. The first vintage of Cupone bottled was 2003.
