Fuorilemura Nero di Troia Rosè
A new entry in the range of Crifo products. Particular vinification techniques with a methodical respect for the raw materials give life to this elegant wine, with a tenuous color and bright reflections. On the palate the explosion of tropical fruits and the good acidity reveal unexpected features of one of the symbol grape varieties of Apulian land.

Grape: Nero di Troia single variety.
Production area: lower slopes of the Murgia to the north east of Ruvo di Puglia.
System: apulian pergola.
Harvesting: late September.
Vinification: the grapes, harvested manually, are transferred to the cellar and subjected to pressing, with the simultaneous addition of carbon snow, useful to protect them from oxidation. They are then cooled at 10 C°, and in the press undergo a short maceration for 4/6 hours, in order to extract the aromas of the skins. The “flower” must is collected for fermentation in steel at 15 C°. The wine
ages for 30 days on the yeasts before being bottled.
Organoleptic characteristics: the pale and luminous color, to the nose is very complex and intense, rich in scents that recall fresh red berried fruits. On the palate we find the same intensity of the fruits, accompanied by a good acidity and in the finish a subtle savory note.
