72100 IGP Salento is a wine produced by Cantine Risveglio, and takes its name from the Brindisi postal code, emphasizing the importance of creating wines with a territorial and local imprint. This extraordinary wine is obtained from 100% Negroamaro grapes that come from vineyards with an age of about 60 years, which produce about 60 quintals of grapes of the highest quality.
The vines are cultivated with the traditional Apulian sapling technique and grow on medium-textured soils at an altitude of about 20 meters above sea level located near “Giancola” site of community importance and the “Cillarese” reservoir a few hundred meters from the sea and facing south-west. The harvest is late and is done manually in the first ten days of October. The vinification takes place after the manual selection of the grapes and the classic destemming with a maceration and fermentation of 15/20 days at a controlled temperature in truncated-conical steel tanks. It is then rested and aged for 4 months in 50 Hl French oak (Allier) truncated conical vats. Finally, the wine rests for a few months in the bottle before being put on the market.
72100 weighs in the glass with a brilliant ruby red color. The nose is intense, complex and fine with marked hints of red fruit and then an incredible kaleidoscope of spices. In the mouth it is warm, soft, intense and harmonious. It expresses a good freshness, acidity and a tannicity typical of negroamaro with a fairly long and persistent finish.
Pairings: ideal companion of rustic dishes, it does not disdain sober and essential dishes.
