50% Nero di Troia & 50% Montepulciano from Murgia, Puglia, Italy.
ABOUT: Rosé di Lulù features fruit from the single-vineyard Vigna de Trono planted over 50 years ago to Nero di Troia. At once aromatic and highly savory in character, Nero di Troia (also: Uva di Troia), is a significant and fine grape variety native to Puglia. Botromagno excels in producing red wines from this grape, and has also turned to the rosato option to great success. High elevation fruit at 700 meters ASL yields aromatic berries, and stainless steel fermentation and aging ensures ideal expression and freshness.
VINIFICATION: Fermented in Stainless Steel tanks for 20 days, at 59 °F. The wine then underwent malolactic fermentation, and was then aged in Stainless Steel tanks for 5 months. Total SO2: 95 mg/l.
