Quattro Conti

4 Conti is one of the big names in Puglia, which is the "boot heel" in Italy. They have lived here since 1580 and gathered in 1935 the power to make their own wine from the family's fields. Today, they have a total of 320 ha. distributed across four wineries and state-of-the-art vinification facilities. The main grapes are the typical grapes: Primitivo, Negro Amaro and Malvasia. The climate is warm and dry with cool winds from the sea.

4 Conti - de fire grever af Zecca - er et af de store navne i Puglien, som er "støvlehælen" i Italien. De har boet her siden 1580 og samlede i 1935 kræfterne om at lave egen vin fra familiens marker. I dag har man samlet 320 ha. fordelt på fire vingårde og topmoderne vinifikationsanlæg. Hovedvægten af druerne er de egnstypiske druer: Primitivo, Negro Amaro og Malvasia. Klimaet er lunt og tørt med svalende vinde fra havet.

General grape descriptions


A fruit-forward-yet-bold red that’s loved for its red fruit flavors and smoky exotic spice notes. Originally from Croatia and related to top Croatian grape, Plavic Mali.

By the middle of the 19th century a vine variously called Zinfandel and Zinfandal had established itself in northern California and was prized for its productivity. A visiting French winemaker even pronounced that its wine was ‘like a good French claret’. It thrived in the warm climate, was beloved by the thousands who shipped grapes east from California to make wine at home during Prohibition, and was the most planted dark-skinned grape variety of the West Coast until usurped by the more glamorous and, significantly, more obviously French, Cabernet Sauvignon in the second half of the 20th century.
