SALENTO: LIGHT AND STONE. "Light" and "stone" the origin of everything in Salento. With its purely Mediterranean character the "light" penetrates in the secret recesses of the earth, warms the brick-red soil, extract the scents from the sea, purple and focuses the bunches.
The "stone", tough and indestructible, but also tender and pliable, emerges from
underground in search of breath; draws the limit of the districts in the dry stone walls, and on the flat covered with old trees, interwoven secretly among the trulli.
In this atmosphere of charm, old vine saplings await silent, motionless in the same place for almost a century. Survive with difficulty to the passage of time, drawing heat from the "light" and refreshment of the "stone." And we still wonders what strange principle of nature, or by what miracle, despite the fatigue and the hardships, these old plants still able to give us the most precious fruits.
