Decanal Pink Zinfandel grapes are selected from low-yielding vineyards in the Salento Peninsular, to the south of Puglia. Vines are trained with Spalliera method.
GRAPES: 100% Primitivo
HARVEST: The grapes are picked particularly early – in August – in order to retain the optimum level of acidity so vital for this style of wine.
VINIFICATION: The grapes are de-stemmed and soft crushed. Using traditional vinification methods, the juice is removed from the fermenter with minimal skin contact, just enough to give the wine its rose colour, while keeping tannins as low as possible.
FERMENTATION: Fermentation takes place for about 10 days. Once complete, the wine is kept on its fine lees for 2 months.
ALCOHOL: 10.5% vol
TASTING NOTES: Decanal Pink Zinfandel Puglia has a lovely bouquet of fresh strawberries, with a lively palate awash with ripe summer fruits. Bursting with flavor – it has an excellent balance making it perfect with or without food. Best serve chilled.
