In a Nutshell
A great winter warming red!
Ruby red with purple hues. This wine is intense with notes of blackberries and blackcurrants. It is medium bodied and velvety, with good balance. It has savoury notes on the long, fresh finish.
The grapes were gently pressed and cooled to 10ºC for a maceration period of 10-12 days with regular pumping over. Yeasts were added to start fermentation, which took place under temperature controlled conditions of up to 20 ºC. The wine was then transferred to oak barriques for a short time for fining before bottling.
Vigneti del Salento
This is the Puglia venture of the Farnese group (responsible for Gran Sasso, Vesevo and Tufarello ). The wines were made at two wineries in the province of Taranto on the western flank of Salento. The style of the wines – fresh whites, soft and generous reds – will be familiar to those who buy their other wines, as winemaker Filippo Baccalaro is the driving force behind this new label.
