Feudi Salentini 125 Uno Due Cinque Malvasia Nera del Salento 2017
Feudi Salentini 125 Malvasia Nera del Salento is a red wine with intense purple hues. It is bursting with fruity notes of pomegranate and raspberries with hints of leather and vanilla. It is fresh and balanced on the palate with smooth tannins. Lush and bold flavours and very easy to drink with plenty of fruity aftertaste. A versatile, everyday red that goes well with everyday delicacies like pasta, pizza, omurice and sweet & sour pork. Definitely a great addition to complete any meal.
100% Malvasia Nera. Vinification by maceration with controlled temperature at 24°- 28°C. After malolactic fermentation, part of it refines in French tonneau at least for 3 months before bottling.
