Dieci Ottobre is an organic wine born from the Nero di Troia and Aglianico grape varieties. It is characterized by an intense red color but not impenetrable. The scent of raspberry arrives on the nose followed by an evident floral note. The fresh aromas find full correspondence to the palate, with a very persistent finish of black cherry. The wood is discreet, barely perceptible. The name is a special tribute: it is dedicated to the son of Raffaele and Valentina born during the harvest!
50% Nero di Troia
Dieci Ottobre is the ideal wine to pair with traditional dishes in particular to first courses with typical vegetables from the rural tradition, second courses of meat, also on a spit, and game. Enhances aged cheeses.
Grape varieties: nero di Troia and aglianico
Vineyard: Trained to spurred cordon, with a yield of 70 quintals per hectare
Vinification: After hand-harvesting in the second week in October, the grapes are de-stemmed and pressed. The must macerates on the skins in stainless steel tanks for 15-20 days, then undergoes a temperature-controlled fermentation at 25°C. The wine goes to large, 30-hectolitre oak casks, where it matures for 18 months, followed by a further 12 months in the bottle.
Sensory profile: A dense, near-opaque red. The nose releases emphatic notes of raspberry, closely followed by an intense florality. The same crisp-edged fragrances continue onto the palate, enriched with subtle hints of oak, while the long-lingering finish displays appealing impressions of wild cherry
