The Salento Rosso Arneide Barricato IGP by Vecchia Torre is a wine that embodies the essence of Salento with a touch of class. Made primarily from Negroamaro and Primitivo grapes, this wine is a tribute to the winemaking tradition of Puglia. The aging in small wooden barrels, or barriques, for a period between 12 and 18 months, gives the wine an olfactory and taste complexity that is hard to forget. On the nose, you perceive notes of ripe red fruits, while on the palate it is soft, velvety in the tannins, and incredibly balanced. Ideal for accompanying a romantic candlelit dinner with roast meat or game dishes, this wine is also an excellent companion for evenings with friends.
