Salice Salentino DOP by Claudio Quarta Vignaiolo is a red wine produced from Negroamaro (80%) and Malvasia Nera (20%) grapes which owes its name to the Greek city of the Peloponnese Monovasia. The plants are grown as a sapling or spurred cordon on medium-textured soils tending to loose, with a good presence of skeleton.
The grapes are harvested in the second decade of September, by mechanized harvester, between night and the first light of dawn so that the low temperature prevents a spontaneous start of fermentation. The final yield is 80 ql/ha in Negroamaro, 100 ql/ha in Malvasia
Vinification takes place in steel at controlled temperature (21-23 ° C). Maceration of the skins on the must for 15 days with frequent re-assembly. Alcoholic fermentation is induced with selected yeasts, and then malolactic fermentation follows.
Salice Salentino DOP by Claudio Quarta Vignaiolo has an intense ruby red color with soft orange reflections conferred by the aging in oak. Elegant notes of blackberries and hints of tobacco and spices.
Pairings: game, meat roasts.
