LanguageITENDERU

Rosato del Salento

Made from Negroamaro and Malvasia nera di Brindisi grapes trellis-trained on calcareous clayey soil on the Salento peninsula. The grapes are harvested by hand at just the right degree of maturity in the middle of September and pressed gently to produce a small quantity of free-run must, subjected to alcoholic fermentation for 10-12 days at a controlled temperature of 15-16°C and then kept in the cellar at a controlled temperature with batonnage. Salmon pink in colour with a rich, fragrant, elegantly fruity fragrance and a dry, fresh, harmonious flavour.
