Armècolo is a wine produced by the Castel di Salve winery starting from the Negroamaro and black Malvasia vines of Lecce cultivated with the espalier training system located in the vineyards of “Masseria Bosco Belvedere” in the countryside of Supersano in the south of Salento. The number of plants per hectare is around 4100-5200 with an average annual production of around 70 quintals/ha.
