Salento’s Sparkling wine produced by Produttori di Vini di Manduria (Taranto, Puglia_Italy). AKA Charme Primitivo Rosè is a wine that was born taking a cue from the great success of AKA Rosato Primitivo and with the intuition of the potential that Primitivo di Manduria can also have in a sparkling key.
This Charmat method is produced in a limited edition of 13,000 bottles from carefully selected Primitivo grapes harvested in the countryside of Manduria. After the manual harvest of the grapes – in the last ten days of August – they are selected and vinified in white with the direct transfer to the pneumatic press. Here, thanks to the skill and experience of the winemaker, the magic of the delicate extraction of the bright coral pink color, the trademark of AKA Rosato, and of the rosé wines produced in Salento, takes place. The white vinification allows to preserve and enhance all the freshness, the fruity scents and the typical aromas of the Primitivo. All with a final yield of no more than 50%. After pressing, the rosé must is sent towards the primary fermentation carried out with a controlled temperature that oscillates between 14 and 17 ° C. The maturation of the must continues in steel with contact on the fine lees until the end of October. Subsequently, the fermented wine is transferred to an autoclave for the secondary fermentation in which the second fermentation takes place. Finally, the wine ages for about 5 months on the lees before being sent to the bottle and to the market.
AKA Charme Primitivo Rosè is presented in the glass with a deep, bright, and intense pink color and with a fine, elegant, and smooth carbonic texture. The nose shows good intensity, showing the classic hints of Primitivo such as ripe red fruits and spring floral notes, then closes with a strong bread crust. In the mouth, it is acidic, effervescent, savory, fresh, stimulating, and fragrant with a finish that softens and caresses the mouth.
Perfect as an aperitif and to brighten all convivial moments. At the table it goes perfectly with a rich crudité of prawns, prawns, and Salento-style sushi; with amberjack carpaccio, snapper, and tuna tartare. Try it with the freshest sea urchins and aubergine parmigiana.
