Irpinia Rosso DOC “Sanserino”: why we like it
The “Sanserino” red wine is the result of the vinification of 70% Aglianico and 30% Sangiovese grapes, grown in the Tenuta’s vineyards. It is a light, lively and aromatic red wine to drink slightly chilled. The vineyards are located in the hilly area of the municipalities of Luogosano, S’Angelo All’Esca and Taurasi, at an altitude of 300 m a.s.l., characterized by a silty and sandy soil type and a frequent presence of limestone and volcanic elements.
The hand-picked grapes are de-stemmed and then cold macerated for a few hours. Then it is the turn of a maceration on the skins for a week and an aging period of at least 16 months in concrete tanks. Finally, it refines at least 4 months in the bottle.
Ideal for food and wine pairings with robust first courses, sausages, roast pork, vegetarian dishes seasoned with rich and tasty sauces, delicately spiced recipes. Service temperature of 12-14 ° C.
