Masseria Doppio Passo Appassimento Rosso Puglia 2020

Masseria Doppio Passo Appassimento Rosso has an intense purple colour. The penetrating bouquet opens with fruity notes of red berries and the notes evolve on the palate into notes of spices and tobacco. It has a full body and well-balanced on the palate. This wine has a perfect balance between soft tannins and acidity. The velvety elegance is fully revealed in the long and persistent finish.

The climate is warm and temperate, with significant rainfall all year round. During the summer the African winds cause a rapid and marked rise of the thermometer and high-temperature variation.

In the last ten days of September, the perfect ripeness of the grapes is reached and winemaking process starts from the vine. The withering process takes place in the vineyard by cutting the petiole of grapes but leaving them on the vine for about 15-20 days, during this period 50% of their weight evaporates. This will allow for wines with typical notes of ripe fruits, such as plums and raisins. The hand-picked grapes are pressed and fermented. The skins are left in contact with the must for a long period to extract flavours and the characteristic red colour. Subsequently, the wine is left to complete the malolactic fermentation; this contributes to the peculiar complexity of this wine.
