Salice Salentino IGT
The grapes are grown in vineyards located in the Salento peninsula of Puglia. 70 to 90 year old vines. Hand harvested. 8.5 tons per hectare yields.
Sandy vineyards are high up on the hillside, and dry farmed.
Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes were sorted and cold fermented in stainless steel tanks. Only natural yeasts were used during fermentation. Pump-overs were very gentle so as not to over-extract the aggressive tannins of this unusual variety. The wine was bottled without fining.
After fermentation the wine was aged for 6 months in cement/steainless stell. After bottling we let the wine rest for at least 4 months. No wood is used.
