The Calafuria Salento IGT by Tormaresca is reminiscent of pale pink peach blossoms with its delicate colour. The bouquet of this rosé wine from Puglia flatters the nose with the intense aromas of juicy peaches, grapefruit and delicate hints of roses and cherry blossoms. On the palate, the Rosé Calafuria presents itself soft, full-bodied, distinctly tasteful, with a perfect balance of acidity and aromatic length in the aftertaste.
Vinification of Tormaresca Calafuria Salento Rosato
The region of Puglia has a very long, historically grown tradition of producing rosé wines from the Negroamaro grape variety, a grape variety that expresses its best potential near the sea.
The grapes of this varietal Negroamaro come from the province of Brindisi in Puglia and mature in vineyards that extend over more than 1 km along the Puglian coast. After manual harvesting, the grapes are destemmed, then gently pressed and the must is cooled to 10° Celsius in stainless steel tanks. By decantation, the must is naturally clarified, followed by alcoholic fermentation instead. After a short maturation period in stainless steel tanks, the Calafuria is refined in the bottle for a further 4 months before it is put on sale.
