Azienda Agricola Conti Zecca

Conti Zecca has a five century history made up of passion, tradition and innovation that have brought it to become one of the most important wineries in Salento and Puglia.
The Neapolitan family moved to Puglia, and more precisaly in the district of Leverano, in the heart of Salento, in 1500 and began an intense agricultural activity on his own estates.
In the course of the centuries the family concern evolved and in 1935 Count Alcibiade Zecca, a man blessed with courage and entrepreneurial abilities, decided to vinify his personal grapes cultivated on his own estates: the winery of Leverano was built and this town became one of the most important trading districts in Puglia.
After the Second World War Alcibiade 's son, Count Giuseppe, introduced new techniques of vine-growing and in the wine cellar he introduced the bottling of wine.
Since 1500 the Conti Zecca 's wine passion carries on.
Today the heirs - Count Alcibiade, Count Francesco, Count Luciano and Count Mario - carry on the family tradition devoting themselves to the family concern: from the selection of the ideal environment and the ideal clones to the planting of the vineyard, from the choice of the ideal agronomic techniques and the ideal grape harvesting time to the vinification and the bottling, for the production of high quality wines.
The direct control of the vineyards allows Conti Zecca to assure to the consumer high quality wines to a very good price.
Conti Zecca produces a large range of high quality red, rosè and white wines: from the "wines of the estates" (Cantalupi, Donna Marzia, Saraceno and Santo Stefano) tho the appreciated wines of the Selections. Among them Nero Conti Zecca, very-well reviewed by the best Italian and foreign wine guides (it is the only Apulian wine to be winning for six consecutive years with Gambero Rosso three glasses).
Nero Conti Zecca, 70% Negroamaro and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, was born by an intuition of the Zecca brothers who, in the Eighties, decided to introduce and taste on their own estates, and more precisely on Cantalupi Estate, selected clones of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Nero was commercialized for the first time in 1999 with the vintage 1997. The vintage 1998 was a great success: the wine experts immediately looked at this red wine of Puglia as a novelty in the oenological regional and national outline for the combination between an Apulian native vine (Negroamaro) and an international vine (Cabernet Sauvignon) that made it one of the best red wines of Puglia.
Beyond the famous Nero, the Selections include: Terra Conti Zecca, Cantalupi Riserva Conti Zecca, Primitivo Conti Zecca, Negramaro Conti Zecca, Cantalupi Rosè Conti Zecca, Luna Conti Zecca, Fiano Conti Zecca, Malvasia Bianca Conti Zecca and Sole Conti Zecca: high quality wines thanks to which Conti Zecca Agricultural Farm promotes in Italy and all over the world the viticultural and oenological potentialities of Salento and Puglia.

Founded in 1932, the Consorzio Produttori Vini di Manduria represents the first big cooperation project of the viticulture of Puglia. In over 76 years of history, the consortium became a multi-level reference point.

My name is Pierfranco, I am the youngest descendant of the Baldi family, winemakers devoted to vine growing and to the ancient art of wine making for generations. My vineyards stretching over 12 hectares lie on hills with very good sunny exposure. If you want to visit me in one of your trips in my region, I will be pleased to welcome you and accompany you for a visit to my vineyards and my cellar for a tasting of the wines I produce.

The Roberto Balugani farm is located on the sunny side of the first hills you encounter upon reaching Levizzano Rangone from Castelvetro, along the Sinistra Guerro route. This charming farm was chosen in 1910 by Venerio Boni, who had built on the estate of Casa Paoli the farmstead that is today the heart of our company. Thereafter, in 1920, the nephew Cavalier Mario Balugani engaged in the art of creating Lambrusco wine with a deep love, a process starting from the vineyard and ending with the bottle. Today visiting our company you can enjoy the breathtaking view from the ridge from which in beautiful symmetry span out the rows of vines th
