This rose wine is a blend of local varieties Negroamaro and Malvasia Nero. Full of fruit, it tastes of raspberry, sour cherry and pomegranate, with a hint of rose wine petal, clay and white pepper on the finish. The wine is dry, clean and elegant, and is a great match to antipasti or simple pasta dishes.
Gabriel de Falco works with the descendents of Negroamaro grapes which have been grown in an around Salento for up to 3,000 years (these grapes were first brought over from ancient Greece, and flourished in the sun-baked terroir which this winery calls its own). Using heritage vines of over a hundred years old, Gabriel’s wines are able to capture the real essence of this land, and allow the rest of the world to experience what was until relatively recently one of southern Italy’s best-kept secrets.
