Amativo Cru Night 2022

Bentornato! Participating restaurants across the country will simultaneously feature ONE iconic single-vineyard wine. This event will feature Cantine Cantele Amativo. Situated in the heart of the Mediterranean, Puglia is a land of rare beauty, where vast plains alternate with gentle hills. This wine represents the soul of the Salento region through their thoughtfully crafted blend of the indigenous varietals Negromaro and Primitivo. 

This prestigious wine is aged gracefully in 3-liter bottles referred to in Italy as “Formati Importanti.” Cru Night offers the rare opportunity to taste an exquisitely developed wine poured by the glass for ONE iconic night.

What is a Cru? A vineyard of recognized quality usually vinified on its own.  

Why Formati Importanti? In Italy, large formats are aptly called Formati Importanti since ‘Important’ wines are typically bottled in larger formats to allow for slow, graceful aging.  Formati Importanti take more time to develop and can be enjoyed longer than a standard wine bottle.

What a value! The wines featured at Cru night are typically upwards of $100 on a wine list and are RARELY offered by the glass. Let’s toast to a taste of something truly special!
