This time I am talking about a rosé from Tenute Tocci, a winery that I told you about a few weeks ago when I reviewed their Primitivo di Manduria DOP "Carus" 2017. I will leave you the link⬇️
Tenute Tocci is a brand that was born recently and gives new life to the family possessions existing since 1850.
Their rosé I tasted is a 2018 vintage and it is made from Negroamaro grapes.
harvest in mid-September around 20 year old vines.
The vinification is done in stainless steel at controlled temperature, leaving the must in contact with the skins for just under a day and then aging in steel for 6 months.
Let's move on to the tasting.
At sight the color is coral pink, almost tending to cherry red.
On the nose I find it complex, particular and at the same time coherent in what are the typical hints of rosé vinified Negroamaro, such as red fruit, in particular strawberry and raspberry.
Once tasted, at the gustatory level we perceive a nice flavor, mineralness and freshness which on the whole make it elegant and well balanced to be enjoyed at the right serving temperature of 12/14 degrees.
Suitable as an aperitif but also to be combined with pizza, salami, cheeses or even throughout the meal both for meat dishes (preferably white meats or poorly prepared dishes) and for seafood dishes.
At the end I leave you the link to the shop to buy this wine. ⬇️
