Mottura vini del Salento
LanguageITENDERU

Salento Rosato

Made in the middle of the Salento peninsula from grapes of three different varieties: a majority of Negroamaro grapes with a small percentage of Malvasia nera di Brindisi and Malvasia nera di Lecce, both grapes of Greek origin which came to Puglia from Morea. Picked by hand with traditional maceration for 36 hours, soft pressing, natural decantation and fermentation at a controlled temperature of 16°C. A soft, bright coral pink in colour with a fruity, floral bouquet offering hints of aromatic herbs, with a good balance of fruit, freshness and full flavour in the mouth.
