The Notarpanaro was the first wine of Cosimo Taurino bottled and named after the Contrada cultivated with vines of Negroamaro age of about 40 years, formerly owned to the Notare Panaro.
From as many as seven generations, Cosimo Taurino’s Family has been dedicating with sacrifice, love for the land and passion, to the cultivation of grapevine, wine making and to the cultivation of the ancient and beautiful Apulian small trees.
Cosimo’s father achieved the first commercial goals in the first three decades of the nineteenth century by providing blending wines in order to increase the Northern wines alcoholic content and improve their color. Mr. Cosimo Taurino commitment and perseverance laid the foundations for a real business focusing on the processing, fining and bottling of its own wine production, Notarpanaro® 1970. It was then that Mr. Cosimo Taurino abandoned his job as a chemist. These wines, used until then only to improve other products, were finally given the chance to express alone all the strength and pride of their homeland, “Salento”.
