Tommasi’s passion for wine, and the desire to discover and select the very best of Italian winemaking, has taken them to Puglia. Around 80 hectares of land have been purchased in Manduria, in the Salento area, one of the finest zones for the cultivation of the Primitivo grape, where viticulture has extremely ancient origins, dating back to the time of Magna Graecia. The property, which lies about 6 km from the Ionian coast, also includes a manor house called “Masseria” dating back to the early 1900s, a typical complex of agricultural buildings which originally acted as an organisational centre for all of the farming operations. Following refurbishment, the Masseria now houses a winery of 700 sqm complete with vinification and maturation facilities.
From the vineyards of Masseria Surani, in the Salento Region. The vines are Guyot-trained and organically grown; the soils are limestone-based and are rich in iron.
8-10 hours’ maceration on the skins. 10-12 days’ fermentation in stainless steel at controlled temperatures, never higher than 13°C. At least 4 months’ bottle-aging.
Elegant and refined rosé, it has floral notes of rose and geranium and fruity notes of pink grapefruit and pomegranate. On the palate it is lively with a pleasant freshness, a good aromatic persistence, followed by a delicate sapidity.
It goes well with all dishes of the Apulian culinary tradition such as orecchiette with brococli rabe and meatballs with tomato sauce. Perfect with fish and fresh pasta.
