Winemaking Notes: The wine is produced from Montepulciano grapes cultivated on young vines located in Atri and following the principles of organic farming. Grapes are manually harvested. Winemaking is carried out in respect of tradition and observing the most up-to-date rosé winemaking methods. The grapes are destemmed and gently pressed. The must is kept in contact with the skins at a temperature of about 8-10 Celsius for 6-10 hours. Spontaneous fermentation occurs in stainless steel with native yeast. The wine ages in stainless steel for about 3 months. It is not fined or filtered. A low amount of SO2 is added.

Tasting Notes: Deep red in color with a pleasantly fruity bouquet. The flavor is fresh and sapid, well-bodied and persistent. Will pair perfectly with salami, soft cheeses and main courses.
