Purpur Farbe. In der Nase intensive fruchtige und beerige Aromen. In der Nase mineralisch, mit viel Frucht, Brombeeren, Heidelbeeren und Lavendel. Sehr komplexer, mit einem fruchtigen, langen Abgang.

Literally translated this name means Tradition of the Grandfather" which is the way this wine is made, in the tradition of the Pichierri familys' grandfather. This varietal is said to have originated in Greece and transported to the Southern Italian region of Puglia centuries ago. In the 17th century it was named "Primitivo" by the Benedictine monks because of its precociousness (early maturity of the grape). Situated on the Salento peninsula, Italy's boot heel, Sava is located high on the instep on a gentle rise known as the Murge Tarantine. Here the soil is red, dotted with white limestone and the hills are low and the land is open. The midday sun is scorching, due to the close proximity to North Africa, but microclimate variations are created by air currents crossing from the Adriatic to the interior Iionian Sea. These vines stand poetically short and stocky, like ancient gnomes with their arms stretched up to the sky to bask in the heat of the sun. ...

Winemaker's Notes:

Soil: Slope<br/><br/>Growing Climate: PINK FROG originates from a cool climate terroir of the foothill terraces in the French Alps enhanced by natural farming practices and low yield, offering grapes with depth and concentration of flavors.<br/><br/>Vinification Method: "Méthode ancestrale" : preserving freshness and delivering dark pink rosé wine, the wine starts fermenting in tanks, keeps fermenting in bottles until 8 % alcohol and approximately 45-55 g/l of remaining natural sugar. The wine is naturally fruity, dark pink and fully sparkling. It is "100 % wine, 100 % Fruity, 100 % Pink" : an Ultra Premium yet Unconventional Sparkling Rosé.<br/><br/>Malolactic: None<br/><br/>Bottle Type: "Champagne Bottle"<br/><br/>Sugar Rate: 13-50 g/l<br/><br/>Cork Material: Natural "Champagne Cork"
