Chakra Rosato Primitivo Gioia del Colle DOC - 2020
Excellent rosé wine made from Primitivo grapes. Primitivo is a world-famous grape making delicious red wines in Puglia. This Primitivo comes from a higher altitude which gives a fresh acidity to the wine. Puglia, or Apulia for English speakers, is in the south of Italy, "down the heel of the boot", originally the place where Mattia comes from.
Giovanni Aiello is the chief of a little and young company growing fast. An "Artisan" of the wine which believes that wine is not only a true expression of the land, but intervention and care in the winery are a must to make great wines. After he studied wines in Friuli and Veneto, he gained experience in the vineyards of California and Australia, before returning home to work in vineyards surrounded by the beautiful Apulian landscape. The vineyards are placed 300 m above the sea level in a "channel" that draws fresh breeze from the sea, giving a unique microclimate suitable for the best red and white grapes.
The wine shows a crystalline pomegranate colour with coral tint. Fruity with aromas of fresh red berries, blackcurrant and cherry surrounded by a bouquet of rose petals and accompanied by notes of Mediterranean woodlands.
The grapes, gently pressed and de-stemmed, remain in contact with the skins for a few hours. At the end of the maceration, after the racking, the must is fermented in steel at a controlled temperature. At the end of fermentation, after the first racking, the wine remains on the fine lees until February, continuous batonnage broadens the volume and harmonizes the taste.
