Perfect with chicken dishes, grilled vegetables, lamb and soups with vegetables and meat.

GRAPES:

100% Negroamaro


VINYARD AREA:

The Negroamaro grapes are carefully selected from low-yielding vineyards in the Province of Lecce, in southern Puglia.


PLANT TRAINING AND DENSITY:

The vines are trained in the Guyot system. Plant density is around 5.000 plants per hectare with an average yield of 2.3 kg per plant. The plants are an average of 15 to 25 years old.


HARVEST:

Careful manual harvest in late September.


VINIFICATION:

After de-stemming, the grapes are not crushed, allowing them to remain intact, reducing damage to the skins and optimizing colour extraction. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 23-25°C for 8-10 days. Frequent remontage and delestage are carried out during the fermentation in order to achieve soft extraction of aromas and gentle tannins. After racking, malolactic fermentation is induced.


AGING:

Following malolactic fermentation the wine is racked and placed in stainless steel containers at a controlled temperature of 18°C.


ALCOHOL:

13 %
