RUAH white wine produced from Fiano grapes originating in Irpinia. It is produced by the Santi Dimitri Winery, using grapes from the land between the agro di Cutrofiano and that of Galatina
Grapes are grown on clay-sandy soils with the Guyot crop technique. The density of the plants is around 4000 / ha and the yield is around 7000 Kg/ha. The harvest takes place in the first hours of dawn in the first third week of August. After the destemming, vinification takes place with a cold maceration followed by soft vacuum pressing and the fermentation phase carried out at about 14 ° C, followed by a cold static clarification. The wine is then aged for 6 months on fine lees. Finally, it matures for a few months in steel and bottle before being placed on the market. For its organoleptic characteristics, this wine is excellent to drink young, but it can give its best even after a couple of years of ageing in bottle.
RUAH of the Santi Dimitri Winery presents all the characteristics due to the great insolation of Salento and the proximity to the sea. The nose is certainly rich and intriguing with distinct floral notes and then ripe fruit such as melon and peach. In the mouth, it is firm, dynamic, clean, dry and sapid. RUAH is a great white wine that can stand comparison even with tasty and complex fish dishes.
