The Mottura family have set themselves up with ambitious goals exposing the expressive power of the indigenous local grapes like Primitivo. The management is in the hands of Antonio Mottura and his daughters, Barbera and Martha. Located in Tuglie in the Province of Lecce, in the heart of the Salento Peninsula, it benefits from the limey, clay tufaceous soil of Campi Salenteria. Since 2015 they have been assisted by Emiliano Rossi, a well respected winemaker, to further develop their winemaking to higher levels.
