DICIOTTO FANALI Negroamaro Rosato Salento IGP is an extraordinary wine born with the idea of enhancing one of the most typical and traditional products of Salento, the Rosato produced from negroamaro grapes. This particular wine is produced by Apollonio Vini, a company with more than 150 years of activity on its shoulders that operates in Monteroni in the heart of Salento.
The grapes that give life to this great Salento red are produced in the area that goes from Monteroni to Copertino, a Salento area with a great wine-growing vocation. The vineyards are located 100 meters above sea level and are cultivated on calcareous soil mixed with clay, with the ancient and traditional Apulian sapling technique. The plants are about 60 years old and the planting density is about 2500 plants per hectare with a final yield of about 40 quintals per hectare.
The harvest is carried out manually in the second half of September, and after the manual harvest of the grapes the classic de-stemming is carried out, followed by soft pressing and static racking, the fermentation process takes place in small acacia barrels, frequently stirring the fermenting mass.
Finally, the wine continues its way with an aging of 12 months in acacia barriques and then ending the refinement period in the bottle until it is put on the market.
Diciotto Fanali is presented in the glass with a brilliant Salmon color crossed by light golden nuances. The range of scents is very wide. The fruity aromas recall freshly ripe cherries and counterbalance fresh herbaceous hints. In the mouth it has a dry, fresh and soft taste. A nice roundness is initially perceived on the tongue, followed by a sensation of structure and almost tannic consistency. Elegant fruity finish with a spicy accent.
Pairing: Structured wine, it should be paired with white meats, cold cuts, fish-based dishes (baked, grilled and stewed) and fresh cheeses.
