Since 1936, for three generations, the world of wine is and has been inextricably linked to the history of the Palamà family, a very rich history
in sacrifices, hard and honest work,
and enormous satisfactions


We have been producing high quality wines since 1900, now in their third generation, always in an authentic Salento atmosphere

metiusco RED

Negroamaro, Malvasia Nera di Lecce, Primitivo, espalier and sapling, from 70 to 100 quintals per hectare.
When in 1996 Ninì, son of Arcangelo and second generation of the company, abandoned the production of bulk wine to go to the bottle, he chose a blend of the three native varieties most widespread in the area, creating a wine with a traditional but extremely modern imprint. With three different harvest periods and three independent vinifications, the new blend is immediately bottled and marketed from the very first months of life. Fresh, very fruity, elegant, easy to drink, but very structured and intense: a wine suitable for the most daring combinations.

metiusco rosè

100% Negroamaro, sapling, 90 quintals per hectare.
Metiusco rosé is processed with the bleeding technique: once the grapes have been processed, the crushed grapes are subjected to cryomaceration for a period ranging from 15 to 20 hours, at the end of which it is extracted from the bottom of the tank and only the 30% of the must. A temperature-controlled fermentation follows.

metiusco bianco

Verdeca, Malvasia Bianca, espalier, 90 quintals per hectare.
We use the two most common native varieties, wisely balanced to enhance their characteristics. Green for acidity, flavor and freshness, Malvasia is overripe in the vineyard, and then in the cellar it works in battonage to increase structure and fruit. Both varieties ferment in steel and at a controlled temperature. The blend of raw wines is processed in reduction.

mavro negroamaro

100% Negroamaro, sapling and espalier, 80 quintals per hectare.
As with all of our top reds, not all vintages allow us to produce Mavro.
We need a perfect balance between sugar content and acidity in the grapes to produce a Negroamaro that can stand the test of time, 12 months in barrique and many years in bottle.
Structure, tannins and bitter aftertaste do justice to our finest grapes.

mavro primitivo

Primitivo 100%, sapling and espalier, 90 quintals per hectare. Harvested in August, the grapes undergo a slight over-ripening in the vineyard, and then ferment in steel. After malolactic fermentation, it rests in French alier barriques for at least 12 months, on woods ranging from the first to the fourth passage.
The wise choice of woods enhances the balance and elegance of a pure Primitivo with a great structure, never cloying but surprisingly fresh.

vino d'arcangelo

“By jealously vinifying the pure Black Malvasia, he created the nectar intended for him and his loved ones, which he met both on cold winter evenings and on hot summer nights, watering every dish with its generous perfume on the table. In memory of Archangel, father of the company”.

100% Malvasia Nera di Lecce, vinified traditionally, respecting the grape variety and the potential of this ancient blend.

The Wines Palamà house has been based in Cutrofiano, in Salento, since 1936.
The wines are obtained from indigenous Apulian vines grown in spagliera or albarello: Negroamaro, Primitivo, Malvasia Nera, Malvasia Bianca and Verdeca, they are vinified alone or in blend.
Ninì and his family personally take care of the vineyards, harvesting and vinification.
