Masseria Maìme is located in one of the most beautiful areas of Upper Salento not too far from the town of San Pietro Vernotico in the province of Brindisi. The estate extends along the coastline forming a unique countryside of vineyards that lies between woodlands and pine forests stretching out as far as the eye can see until blending into the sea. The most prevalent grape varieties grown here are Negroamaro, Primitivo, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
There are two neighboring plots on the Masseria Maìme estate: one called Roy and the smaller one, Roycello. These names are a reminder of one the area’s natural inhabitants in the 30’s and 40’s, a Eurasian crane that preferred the swampy area of the Cerano Woods and whose name in dialect mimicked the name Roy. Roycello is produced from the eponymous plot and reflects in both name and style its close connection to the territory.
Roycello is straw yellow with light green hues. An expressive nose with citrusy notes of grapefruits and jasmine is accented by hints of apricots, yellow peaches, and melon. Its bouquet is completed by delicate floral aromas of lavender. The pleasant entry on the palate is characterized by outstanding freshness and a compelling savory essence.
