Borgo del Mandorlo BORGO DEL MANDORLO is a tribute to Apulia, to its history. In the Roman times, Pliny the Old owned the wonderful and special marvels of the lands now in the provinces of Taranto and Lecce; one of this places can be visited and has his name: the Plinian source. It’s a large natural cave where light enters through a small space. The entrance has a circular wall of sandstone. The really marvellous thing is that an almond tree has grown there. It is a tree loved by the Apulian inhabitants and we have drawn our inspiration for ther name of our Apulian wines. Enchanting wines, full bodied and intense that will delight you sip after sip
