Organic, dry-farmed 30-40 year old vines cultivated in the classical "Alberello Salentino" ancient Greek training system that promotes low yields and dense fruit. Single vineyard fruit. Native yeasts. Matured in large neutral oak barrels before aging in steel tank. The southernmost tip of the Mediterranean jewel region of Puglia has long been famed for its outstanding Rose' wines. Indeed in Italy word is that the Salento yields the absolute diamond tip of Italian pink production. The secret? Varietals, soils, climate and tradition. In other words...TERROIR. Hailing from the all famous TERRA ROSSA soils (red earth) rich in iron sediments that provide the wines with structure and complexity, made from the traditional and ancient grapes Negroamaro & Malvasia Nera, sun-drenched in one of Italy's most blessed and "comfortable" climates and steeped in a long tradition of summer, sails, seafood and beach...ROSA DEL GOLFO is a family owned winery that based it's entire name on the prized Rose' they have been making for generations. Mediterranean pink specialists!
