Produced by Cantina Vecchia Torre, this red wine is a perfect balance between the Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera grape varieties, two of the most characteristic of the region.
The harvest takes place from mid-September for the Malvasia Nera until the first week of October for the Negroamaro. After destemming the grapes, the must ferments in contact with the skins for about 6-7 days at temperatures of 24-26°C. Following alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, the wine rests in barriques for about 10-12 months, followed by further refinement in the bottle for at least 3 months.
Visually, the Leverano Riserva DOP presents itself with an intense ruby-red color. On the nose, the bouquet is enveloping and complex, with notes of ripe red fruits and light spicy nuances. On the palate, the wine is warm, rich, and soft, with a very long persistence that is characteristic of Negroamaro.
The structure of this wine is robust and well-balanced, making it an excellent choice for aging. It pairs splendidly with roasted red meats, game, and aged cheeses.
