The smallest and most specialised of the Claudio Quarta wineries; a tiny vineyard and cellar created to make and refine only one wine, the eponymous Moros: produced in small quantities and a rarity on the national scene.
The winery stands in the small agricultural village, Guagnano, the epicentre of DOP Salice Salentino, in the heart of Negroamaro production. In this modern “garage-wine” winery the Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera grapes, grown in a small 1.1 hectare vineyard adjacent to the winery and where the recovery work of vines dating back at least fifty years, has successfully been completed. The distance between the rows is still the same thus requiring only manual harvest. The cellar, with modern equipment, has a total production capacity of 400 Hl.

A subtle hint of mesquite smoke wafts through the flavors of crushed black cherry, pomegranate, dried marjoram and graphite in this tightly meshed red. Medium- to full-bodied, with firm tannins gaining momentum on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 250 cases made.” A.N. 6/30/16
