The Negroamaro Rosato IGP of the Petrelli Winery is produced exclusively from Negroamaro grapes harvested by hand at the end of September at the owned vines grown on the land located on the estate adjacent to the farm. The lands exposed on the north / south slope are of medium clayey argillaceous nature and are located in the area near Carmiano in the province of Lecce called “della Chiusa”.
The grapes are then processed by soft pressing, maceration for about 24 hours and alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature in stainless steel vats. After the fermentation processes the wine rests in steel and finally finishes its aging directly in the bottle.
The Negroamaro Rosato by Cantina Petrelli has a bright pink color with orange reflections on the glass. Structure and character typical of Negroamaro, not too pronounced aromas of apricot and cherry, great freshness and an acidic aftertaste that gives that extra touch of personality.
