Every Wine needs proper bunches selected to the right maturation.

For Peperosa we select the 3,4% of grapes suitable for this wine.

After a careful manual selection, grapes starts a process of cold maceration followed by a soft pressing; afterwards, it is fermented under controlled temperature in order to preserve fragrances and colour.

The fascinating bright pale pink hint gives brightness and goes from Tropea’s onion to wild rose.

The aroma has fragrant note of Annurca apple, white pulp fruits, wisteria, the sweetness of cherry and blackberry. That is “Pink Pepper”.

The taste is mineral, soft, adequately sapid. The characteristic that makes this product unique is the tannin content. The long finish clearly reminds the fruit salad of June.

Match with appetizers, first courses and fish soups.
