If it weren’t for Angelo Maci, many of the last remaining century old vines in Puglia would have been uprooted by now. But Angelo turns their tiny quantities of dark, spicy grapes into a very special red of remarkable depth and satisfying richness.

If you’re a fan of the sort of reds you can only get from ancient, ultra sunny vineyards, then chances are you’ll love Il Brutto. So low yielding and unprofitable were these heirloom Negroamaro and Primitivo vines that the growers in Puglia were planning to rip them out. The fruit flavour, however, is amazing, so our man on the ground, Leo, stepped in and offered to make it worth their while to carry on tending them. He also engaged his good friend Angelo Maci from the nearby award winning Cantine Due Palme winery to turn the grapes into a magnificent red. The vines’ twisted trunks may be ugly (‘brutto’) to outsiders, but they’re things of beauty to those in the know. Serve this treasured red with hearty dishes such as a casserole.
