SALENTO IGT

Area

Salento, Puglia (Southern Italy)

Grapes

75% Primitivo - 25% Negroamaro

Vinification and Maturation

The grapes are carefully harvested and subjected to a soft crush in horizontal presses. Fermentation occurs at controlled temperature with delicate maceration of the skins, which guarantees full extraction of colour, aromas and the polyphenolic substances they contain. After the alcoholic fermentation is over, the wine undergoes also the malolactic fermentation, a process that lowers total acidity and makes wines seem rounder and fuller in flavour.

Colour

Deep ruby-red colour enlivened by purple reflections.

Bouquet

Intense and fruity bouquet with hints of plum and dried cherry.

Flavour

Dry with a fine structure and outstanding roundness. It shows a complex and persistent fruitiness on the palate.

Serving Temperature

At 16-18° C (61-64° F).

Food Combinations

A modern-styled blend that makes this wine a perfect complement to savoury first-course dishes, grilled or roasted red meats and moderately aged cheeses.

Alcohol Level

13% by volume.
