Calafuria is the iconic rosé wine produced by Tormaresca Antinori with Negroamaro grapes from the vineyards cultivated in the Tenuta Maìme in San Pietro Vernotico (BR). The grapes are harvested in the first week of September and are selected by hand, gently de-stemmed and softly pressed. The must obtained is placed in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 10 ° C, so as to obtain a natural decantation. Subsequently the grafting of the alcoholic fermentation takes place which is carried out at low temperatures (16 ° C) to keep the primary aromas intact. This is followed by a short period of aging in steel and 4 months of aging in the bottle.
The Negroamaro rosé from Salento Calafuria is characterized by a pink peony color, has an intense and delicate aroma, stand out the fragrant notes of peach and grapefruit and floral notes of violets. In the mouth it has a soft entry followed by a pleasant acidity followed by an excellent acidic balance with great flavor and a good aromatic persistence.
