Azienda Agricola F.lli Rossi
In 1970 the Rossi family became the owner of part of the land in the countryside of Sammichele di Bari, Casamassima, Gioia del Colle and Acquaviva delle Fonti which were owned by Count Michele Vaaz and by succession of the Princes Enrico and Francesco Saverio Caracciolo di Vietri..
In 1978 they fOunded the Azienda Agricola F.lli Rossi with the intention of cultivating the owned land with cherry orchards, olive groves and vineyards.
In 2004 ed with great passion and dedication by Vito Rossi, firmly believing in the potential of the area and its native vines, decided to convert 25 hectares with a new espalier system dedicated to a great historical vine from the south: the Primitivo.
The company's objective is the progressive conversion of its land with new plantings of native Apulian vines, from which to produce quality wines of great aromatic complexity, which are the highest expression of the Mediterranean spirit and typicality of their territory of origin.
Tradition and ancient peasant culture also inspire the production of the precious Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 100% Coratina cultivar, produced in limited quantities and obtained only from the best olives selected after harvesting which is strictly done by hand.
A VERY RANDOM
My collaboration with the Centovignali winery stems from a coincidence that is actually very causal; just like everything, a great wine is born from a pure alchemy made up of intuitions, taste and aroma, created with technique and careful agronomic research.
I drank Centovignali's Pentimone in Puglia and it literally struck me. Supported by a full-bodied but elegant vine. It underlines the territoriality of Puglia, through the primitivo di Gioia del Colle, making this red of excellence special on the nose and on the palate. Of great personality are equally the Indellicato, the Serviano and also the Frassanito, among the greatest Apulian rosés, which unleashes hints of rose, cherry and almonds on the nose.

The CENTOVIGNALI brand is a tribute to places and tradition.
Its etymology goes back to the historical events of Sammichele di Bari, once Casa Vaaz, and its first hundred houses, the vignali, characterized by a vine branch on the door.
