Rosso 'Torre del Falco' Torrevento 2020

The grapes Nero di Troia that make Rosso "Torre del Falco" of Torrevento are grown in the Alta Murgia National Park, with limestone and hard soils. They undergo a long maceration and fermentation in steel tanks so that the varietal aromas stand still. It shows strong earthy notes and berries such as blackberry and redcurrant. The sip is very plesant and easy, adding floreal aromas of violet and spices and giving a quite large and elegant aromatic range
