From Negroamaro grapes. Ruby red wine with garnet efects, it has hints of ripe red fruits, cherry, plum and blackberry, paired with myrtle and licorice root; in mouth it is full, round and sweet. Glykós, a greek word for sweet, is a wine obtained from the vinification of Negroamaro grapes grown in the vineyards of Copertino and wilting in the sun of Salento. In this land, where grecanico is still a spoken language, the cultivation of the vine was introduced by the ancient Greeks.
