WINE OF THE MONTH
Rosone negroamaro del Salento 2019 from Villa Mottura
Just new in, the Rosone: an ottimo vino from the experienced winery Villa Mottura in the heel of Italy, Apulia. A full, powerful and at the same time velvety wine that can easily compete with the international toppers. The Rosone is completely balanced, is bursting with jam-like fruit but you also taste something of vanilla and cloves in it and also has a soft, long finish.
The Rosone by the well-respected winemaker Emiliano Rossi is made entirely from negroamaro, a grape that already caused a furore in the sixth century BC in the far south of Italy, in the Salento region. Salento is sometimes compared to the Maldives. But unlike in the Maldives, not only is the beach snow white and the sea baby blue, the calcareous clay also makes this area ideal for wine growing. Add to that the warm summers and you understand the temperament, that rich taste in this wine. The color of the Rosone is intense red, even redder than pomegranate. In short: the Rosone is in every respect a awesome wine in optima forma and that for an extremely affordable price. If you want to impress your future love or your current in-laws, or if you want to tickle yourself during this holidays, or after, order it from this link or buy it from our wine shop on Fahrenheitstraat.
