Purato Terre Siciliane Organic Rose 2017

Producers Notes:

A highly characterful, bright rosè, with tons of fresh red berry fruit flavours. Lively and vibrant, it's perfect as an aperitif or a great choice with prawns.

The first vintage of Purato Rosé has been produced in very limited quantities and has been released early for maximum freshness.

Grapes: 100% Nero d'Avola

Vineyard area: Grapes are selected from the best vineyards in the Trapani area. Vine training is by traditional Spalliera system.

Harvest: The grapes are picked in early September - about 7-10 days before the Nero d'Avola grapes used for our red wines in order to retain a better acidity level. The grapes are carefully selected in order to choose only those which are perfectly ripe.

Vinification: After de-stemming, the grapes are crushed. Very soon after the grapes are put into the fermenting tanks, the cap of skins is removed, allowing only minimum skin contact. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures not exceeding 18C for approximately 10 days.
