Italian territory is characterized by many grape varieties typical of the area favored by microclimate, soil, and many other factors that characterize unique wines representing a particular geographical location. In Puglia, there are wines that represent a specific area, and I am talking about a wine that is representative of a beautiful area in Puglia.
The Negramaro. The Negro Amaro grape, also known as Negroamaro, is a black grape variety native to Puglia, where the Salento area has the highest cultivation, although it is also present in the rest of the region.
The Negramaro is very versatile and is used to create DOC wines, both rosé and red, with a delicious flavor. A mix of Negramaro grapes (70%) and Malvasia nera di Lecce grapes (30%) produces the Vino Rosato IGT Salento signed by Oro del Salento, with a pink color.
The IGT Salento Rosé wine, signed by Oro del Salento, is made mostly with Negroamaro grapes and 30% of Malvasia nera di Lecce grapes. This young, crystalline rosé has a beautiful intensity, intense and persistent aroma with hints of rose and pink fruits, fresh and balanced taste.
Vino Rosato IGT Salento, if served at a temperature of 12/14°, is ideal for:
- aperitifs and accompanying Italian appetizers
- first courses
- fish soups
- baked or grilled fish
- dishes based on white meat
- young or slightly aged cheeses
It remains consistently fragrant from the first sip. The Vino Rosato IGT Salento is ready to drink now, but it is recommended to keep it cool and serve it at a temperature of 12°.
