Tenute Rubino, Negroamaro Rosato, IGT, Puglia, Italy, 2019
Tommaso Rubino, a firm believer in Salento's potential, acquired in the 1980's four separate estates to demonstrate the diversity of the region.
Jaddico, Marmorelle, Uggio and Punta Aquila stretch from the Adriatic coast to the hinterland of Brindisi. Tommaso's goal was to show Salento wine at it's very best and through the diverse range that his family now offer, made from local varietals like the fascinating Susamaniello and more well known ones such as Primitivo, they are well on their way.
Vineyards located in Brindisi at sea level on sandy soils. The density of planting is around 4000 vines per hectare and trained spur cordon.
Macerated in stainless steel for 5 hours to extract the colour. No malolactic fermentation.
No oak treatment
Clear and intense pink. A floral bouquet of rose and violet, with cherry and blueberry to add complexity. Fresh, soft and a persistent finish.
Great with focaccia, pizzas as well as calamari and roasted veal.
6 x 75cl
