Vineyard & Wine Region Information

The Rosso IGT Puglia Vino Appassimento Gold Release from Ca’Vittoria is a 60% Negroamaro, 25% Merlot, 15% Primitivo blend of grapes grown and harvested in the Salento area using the 'passito' method, with picking occurring as late as October. Once ripe the grapes are allowed to mature on the vine for about 15 days, naturally drying out. Roughly 50% of their weight and moisture is lost, leaving the fruit with a very high level of sugar and in turn a relatively higher alcohol content in the finished wine.

After a rigorous hand harvest, the grapes are pressed and the fermentation starts; the skins are left in the must for a long period to extract flavours and the characteristic ruby red colour. Subsequently the wine is left in oak for about 3 or 4 months; this ageing gives pleasant notes of spice and vanilla.
