more information

The Trentangeli Castel del Monte Rosso DOC from Tormaresca shines in the glass in an intense ruby red with a violet hue. On the nose, the bouquet is fruity and complex, with aromas of cherries, blackberries and mulberries, complemented by spicy notes of pepper and liquorice. This red wine from Apulia pleases by its warmth on the palate, it is rich with a great structure and a persistent taste. The ageing in barrique barrels gives this cuvée its enormous length and elegance, velvety tannins round off the taste experience. The finish is pleasant and persistent.

Vinification of Tormaresca Trentangeli Castel del Monte DOC

The grapes for this cuvée from Aglianico 70%, Cabernet Sauvignon 20% and Syrah 10% come from the vineyards of the Bocca di Lupo winery in Tormaresca, not far from Castel del Monte. The grapes are harvested at a very high ripeness to produce a rich wine. After pressing, the must is fermented in stainless steel tanks in contact with the skins at 25° Celsius, where it is gently mixed with the must to obtain as much extract from the grapes as possible. After being removed from the skins, the wine is put into French and Hungarian oak barriques and undergoes malolactic fermentation, followed by 12 months of ageing and 8 months of bottle ageing before being sold.

This wine is the result of the desire to bring wine enthusiasts closer to the ancient Aglianico grape variety and to demonstrate the enormous potential and complexity of this grape variety in a modern cuvée. The wine comes from a part of the estate where today there is a railway junction, once a place where the shepherds and their herds stopped for their long seasonal migrations. According to legend, the passage of the shepherds was protected by thirty angels, which ultimately gave the wine its name Trentangeli.
