Notte Rossa Primitivo Rosato Salento IGP

Land of Primitivo di Manduria, at the gate of the wild Salento, in Puglia. This land is known for its long summers, its heat swirling all through the vines, and for the cool night breezes that blow through the countryside. Farmers’ hands made red by the soil, burnt by the zenith sun; fiery sunsets that repeat an ancient miracle during harvest.
Rosé wine produced from 100% Primitivo grapes, crispy, scented and versatile. Fragrant red fruit, a nice minerality, a delicate colour that appeals. It goes well with Italian style starters, fish soups, roasted or baked-in-a-bag fish, fresh or slightly aged cheeses.
|VINE TRAINING||Espalier, 4500 vines per Ha|

Production Area: Salento, Puglia. The area is about 100 m above sea level, with high average temperatures and medium-low rainfall. The soft soil layer is clayey and quite thin, with a good presence of rocks.
Vinification and Ageing: Skin contact for few hours followed by partial drawing off of the must of Primitivo grapes, and then fermentation. Aged in stainless steel tanks.
Tasting Notes: Softly rosé, intense and persistent aroma of Mediterranean maquis, with cherry and raspberry notes. A fresh and elegant wine, balanced in the mouth.
