The "Nerio" comes from Negroamaro grapes and a small part of black Malvasia cultivated as a sapling in Nardò, in the province of Lecce, from vines of 50 years. The grapes are harvested by hand and gently stored in small aerated boxes to preserve their integrity. In the cellar they are then further selected on a modern sorting table. After fermentation the wine rests 8 months in tonneaux with medium roasting; then another 6 months of further aging in bottle.
