AKA Rosato IGP Salento is a wine produced by Produttori di Manduria (Taranto, Puglia_Italy). This Salento rosé comes from Primitivo grapes. The grapes are harvested manually from 20-to 40-year-old vineyards cultivated with Apulian sapling on medium-textured calcareous-tuffaceous soils, located in the Manduria’s wine area. The vinification is carried out in red and starts with the grape harvest at the end of August. After harvesting and soft pressing and destemming of the grapes, the hat is raised for 12 hours. Thermo-conditioning of the fermentation process in stainless steel vats follows. The wine continues with a refinement in the bottle.
On an organoleptic examination, AKA Rosato has a coral pink color, crystalline, which anticipates the good structure of the wine. The scent is characterized by a fragrant fruitiness that expresses – with a marked intensity – hints of red apple, fresh wild strawberries, and raspberry. On the palate, the flavor is dry and gives a pleasant sensation. It is soft with a perceptible note of freshness and prolonged taste-olfactory persistence.
Perfect as an aperitif with seafood and ideal to accompany first and second courses of the seafaring tradition of Salento.
