Pietra Rosato

Wine Description

Negroamaro is perhaps the most important grapes grown in Puglia. It accounts for almost 70% of all grapes grown in the region. Negroamaro and Susumaniello build a fabulously luscious rose with a very silky, yet brightly acidic mouthfeel.

Tasting Notes

The color is a vibrant cherry red, with a bouquet of rich cherry, raspberry, and candy bonbons, on the palate, there is plenty of red fruit with a hint of basil.

Food Pairings

Short aged cheese, grilled poultry, and shellfish.
