Salice Salentino Rosso

Produced in the middle of the Salento peninsula, a great traditional wine-making area, from trellis-trained Negroamaro and Malvasia nera di Brindisi grapes. Harvested by hand when just ripe and fermented with 10-12 days of skin contact at a controlled temperature of 20°C with constant pumping-over and delestage. Malolactic fermentation in steel. Ruby red with orangey garnet highlights when aged, with an ethereal fragrance rich in ripe fruit.
