Red grape varieties
The IGT Salento production area extends on the hills of the southern part of Apulia Region, in the Provinces of Lecce, Taranto and Brindisi (South-Italy)
Good exposure and ventilation typical of a peninsula surrounded by sea. Soils are mainly clayey, but you can also find fine and calcareous soils with limited thickness and excellent drainage or red soils, stony, and rich in minerals.
Depending on the vintage and on the grape varieties harvest takes place throughout the month of September, at latest beginning of October for some late varieties.
Pressing and maceration to extract the colour and soft tannins. Fermentation at controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks and pumping over. Wine rests and refines for a certain period of time before bottling.
Deep ruby red with garnet hues
Delicious fruity bouquet with clear notes of ripe red fruits and cherries
Intense nose reminiscent of red fruit in spirits, plum jam, liquorice and dried fruits
Perfect with cold cuts appetizer, vegetable soup, red meat and fresh cheeses. Has a substained body, which can be combined to complex red meats dishes too.
Serving at room temperature, about 18-20°C. We suggest to uncork the bottle at least a couple of hours before enjoying it.
