Two fantastic new varietal wines from southern Italy go by the name Carlomagno, the Italian spelling of Charlemagne.
Charlemagne, was one of the most important and influential Roman Emperors, achieving a great deal during his reign from 800-814 AD. The central character in the famous southern Italian ‘Opera dei Pupi’ or ‘Opera of the Puppets’, Carlomagno is portrayed as an heroic, historical character, representing the traditions and spirit of the south.
The Salento Peninsula is widely famous for its stunning beaches and landscapes and more recently its flavoursome wines. Carlomagno Fiano and Primitivo are genuine natives of Southern Italy, and they reflect the tradition, character and spirit of the south – and its long history of winemaking.
