The Salento Rosso A Passo Lento IGP by Vecchia Torre is a wine that enchants and envelops the palate with its softness and harmony. Produced in the heart of Salento, this wine is a blend of Negroamaro, the symbolic grape of this land, and a small addition of Syrah. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that the grapes are left to overripe on the vine for about ten days after the normal harvesting period. The intense purple-red color heralds aromas of ripe fruit and carob, making it a guaranteed success for lovers of significant wines. Ideal for those looking for full-bodied and structured wines, it pairs wonderfully with long-aged cheeses accompanied by honey and with main courses of roast and braised meat.
