Carvinea is a young, small reality founded in the early 2000s. From the very beginning Carvinea has produced important wines, which have been consistently awarded with relevant recognitions.
Puglia boasts an ancient tradition in vine-growing and wine-making. The land of Carovigno, where Carvinea’s vineyards are located, benefits from the ionic and briny actions of two seas enclosing the Salento area; the Adriatic and the Jonian Seas. The extremely meticulous work carried out in the vineyards, delivers grapes that are perfect in every aspect. When the ripening occurs under such care and conditions, the resulting wines can only have outstanding qualities.
Our line of wines offers an exquisite taste experience. It represents the new Puglia of Salento, enhanced by the passion of Beppe Di Maria and the scientific knowledge of the winemaker Riccardo Cotarella .

Description “At the end of the harvest the blackbirds, called in the local dialect “merula” appear between the rows, catching the small grapes remained in the plant and the grapes fallen to the ground.“Technical Sheet
Beppe di Maria
An adamantine ruby colour and an intense and generous aromatic character. Like a drumming sound, it delights the nose with notes of wild berries, damask rose, mint chocolate, fine spices of all progenies, then veers into memories of blond tobacco and liquorice powder. On the palate, it is more rounded and fascinating than impressive: it has a well-calibrated structure, with noble tannin and flashes of savoury minerality. It is enjoyable until the long epilogue, orchestrated on tones of citrus.
