Tre di Tre Lupo Meraviglia, Apulia, Puliga, IGT, Italy 2018
A blend of Negroamaro, Aglianico and Primitivo
This dry red wine has an intense red colour. On the nose the wine has scents of red fruit and jam which merge with the sweet and spicy notes of wood. On the palate it shows a great structure and persistence with a pleasant tannic finish.
Ideal for grilled red meat.
This unique wine, obtained from a blend of Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera, relies in its vinification method which involves the use of millstones during the fermentation process. These ancestral elements had been used in Apulia since the first wine-making experiences, and various archaeological findings attested their presence in the Salento area. They were made of stone and their characteristic shape (low, wide and completely open) allowed a better contact between the must and the skins with respect to the traditional winemaking methods, improving the dissolution of oxygen during the fermentation process. Nowadays, the grapes are vinified inside the “modern” stainless steel millstones, whose shape and characteristics mirror the original ones. The wine obtained, with no oak refining, has a great structure, concentration and a very high persistence; the complete extraction of all the skins parts and the greater dissolution of oxygen during the fermentation process result in more mature tannins, which become less aggressive and more long-lasting.
