Leverano Rosso Riserva DOP is an identity wine produced by Cantina Vecchia Torre. A red wine that fully expresses the Salento winemaking tradition with its most characteristic grape variety, the negroamaro that goes perfectly with the black malvasia that manage to give this wine a perfect balance and great drinkability. Incredible quality wine with an unbeatable value for money.

The grapes used to produce the Leverano Riserva DOP come from soils of alluvial origin, of medium texture with areas tending to limestone located in the countryside of Leverano. The yield per hectare is deliberately kept low, around 70 quintals of grapes. The training system used is partly Apulian sapling, and partly spurred cordon with a planting density of 5000 plants per hectare.

The grapes are harvested from mid-September for the black malvasia until the first week of October for the negroamaro. After the destemming of the grapes, the must ferments in contact with the skins for 6-7 days at temperatures of 24-26 °C. At the end of the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation the wine rests in barriques for about 10-12 months. Further refinement in the bottle follows for at least 3 months.

Leverano Riserva DOP is presented in the glass with an intense ruby ​​red color, quite dark. The nose is intense, intoxicating, with hints of ripe red fruits and light spicy notes. In the mouth it is warm, rich, soft, with a very long persistence in the final characteristic of the negroamaro.

Pairings: suitable to accompany roasted red meats, game and aged cheeses.
