Cevico - Borgo dei Trulli Vermentino 2020 750ml
2020 Vermentino Salento IGP -- from the province of Lecce, Puglia
Pale yellow in colour, the wine displays attractive aromas of peach, lemon peel, mango and dry herbs. On the palate the saline minerality comes through and blends with a complex and pleasantly fresh acidity. Perfect as an aperitif on its own or excellent to accompany pasta dishes with shellfish or grilled white meats.
After a delicate de-stemming, the grapes are not pressed, but left to macerate on their skins for approximately 12 hours at 4°C to increase extraction of the delicate aromas. The grapes are then gently pressed and the clarified must is placed in stainless steel fermentation tanks. Fermentation is carried out using selected yeasts at a controlled temperature of 15°C and lasts approximately 10 days.
