Alzavola Rosso 2017 Organic - Vegan

Alzavola Rosso 2017 Organic – Vegan

£13.00

An extraordinary full-bodied red award-winning 100% organic and vegan wine. The wine has a ruby red colour that is filled with richness and elegance. A deep blend combining two fantastic grapes that produce a luxurious organic wine. On the nose, the aromatic scent is intense but delicate. From ripe to bitter fruit, from the earth to toasted balsamic woods, wildflowers to fruit jellies. Alzavola Rosso is considered an “easy-drinking” wine thanks to its rich tannins and deliciously soft velvety dark fruit flavours such as cherry and plum. This wine goes perfect with red meat and game. Excellent as an aperitif and with first courses.  Ideally served at a temperature range of 16-18°C.

Description

Alzavola Rosso  2017 14.5% (Organic Red) (Vegan)

Farming of grapes: This wine is obtained from a blend of the Montepulciano grape and Merlot, grown in the old vineyards selected in the municipalities of Orsogna, Filleto and Guardiagrele. They are small towns in the province of Chieti in the Abruzzo region of Italy. The soils are made up of textured lands and generally end with a limestone substrate and rocky outcrops sparse. The thermal values characterize a rather warm texture, with little annual rainfall and very high-temperature ranges; ideal conditions that have a positive influence on the quality of the grapes.  Planting density is 4000 plants per hectare. A Guyot orientation system is used for planting.  The harvest takes place during the second half of October.

Vinification: When in an advanced state of ripeness, the grapes are harvested manually at a temperature ranging between 22 and 24 °C for 15-16 days. The Montepulciano is harvested later. Both the Merlot and Montepulciano are aged 6 to 8 months. The Merlot in oak barrels and the Montepulciano in stainless steel tanks.
