Wine Notes:Boamundus deeply reflects the soul and the historical roots of our terroir and it is our homage to a hero of the First Crusade, the German Boemondo I d’Altavilla (1058-1111). It blends two historical grapes: the black grape Nero di Troia, which gives the wine a full body and strong character, and the Montepulciano grape, which is famous for its particular softness and pleasant ruby red colour.
