The Senator Dario Stefàno is one of the most important figures in the Salento and Apulian wine and wine scene. For years his commitment to agriculture in Puglia and in particular in the wine sector has produced considerable results at local, national and community level. One of his greatest passions has always been rosé wine. And not just any one but one in particular, the classic Salento wine produced starting from the queen grapes of the peninsula or negroamaro. In fact, one of his greatest activities was precisely that of bringing the centuries-old production of this traditional Apulian wine to the fore of the most important and prestigious stages in Italy. It is precisely by cultivating this passion of his that, starting from the 2019 harvest, Senator Stefàno has decided to be himself a protagonist of this rebirth and growth, producing himself a rosé wine that bears his signature. The wine that has an emblematic name, namely Tacco Rosa, a name that perfectly summarizes its production philosophy, and which incredibly managed in its debut to win the prestigious 5 Grappoli di Bibenda.
Tacco Rosa is made in one of the most important wineries in Salento in the nerve center of Negroamaro production, Cellino San Marco. The grapes used to give life to this rosé are tree-trained with an average age between 20 and 40 years and with a density of about 4000/4500 plants per hectare. The harvest is done manually starting from the middle of September. Once de-stemmed, the wine is processed in a soft press and then sent to fermentation in steel at a controlled temperature.
Tacco Rosa is presented in the glass with a bright and seductive color, on a delicate pink with slightly orange nuances. The nose is medium intense with hints of red fruits and Mediterranean scrub, and then pomegranate and wild strawberries. The mouth is immediately enveloped by a good fruit, a great flavor, and a freshness that is almost balsamic. The remarkable acidity, a good structure and a not excessive alcohol content make it balanced, delicate and elegant, with a finish that is long persistent and typically and slightly bitter, an unmistakable sign of the Negroamaro grape variety.
Pairings: Perfect wine to combine with a crudité of Mediterranean fish such as tuna, snapper and swordfish, or perfect for a steamed sea bass with citrus aromas. Also excellent to sip alone on the shores of a wonderful Salento beach.
