Cantine Polvanera


Filippo Cassano

REGION: Puglia

A long family tradition characterizes the history of CantinePolvanera, which was founded in 2002 as a result of the dreams and determination of its owner and oenologist Filippo Cassano. He has always been well aware of the potential of his territory and its atypical grapes. His father’s viticultural skills combined with training at the “Basile Caramia” School of Agriculture in Locorotondo, made Filippo decide to bet on pure vinification, a process that enhances the peculiar characteristics of both the vines and the terroir. 

The cellar itself is uncommon: dug eight meters down into the limestone, this charming structure allows the wines to age at a constant temperature. Polvanera is located next to the famous tourist area of Apulia, 30 minutes away from Itria Valley and Matera. The latest equipment for pressing and vinification contributes to the BIO selection offered by Polvanera. 

The taste of the wines represents tradition. The grapes that grow on the old bush vines are vinified with modern yet absolutely simple oenological practices. Maturation and fermentation take place in stainless steel tanks and bottles. The wines have no contact with oak which preserves the original tastes and characteristics of Primitivo and also avoids oxidative evolutions. This combination of tradition and innovation gives life to a wine strictly connected with its territory, which has a high drinkability and typical elegant, fresh, and mineral notes.

Wine Region:


Also known as Apulia, the region of Puglia is located at the heel of the boot that is southern Italy. Despite the region’s name coming from the word “a-pulvia”(or “lack of rain”), it is a significant producer of grapes for both the table and wine. Terroir is mostly Mediterranean; warm and sunny with an Adriatic breeze on limestone-rich soil near and along the coastline that’s longest among all Italian regions. 

Puglia is the second largest Italian wine region alongside Sicily, with the former mostly known as a source of grapes than a source of wine, although winemakers do reside here albeit in smaller numbers. Aside from the Adriatic Sea to its east, the Ionian Sea is at its southeast, while the Gulf of Taranto and Strait of Otranto are to its south.
