Production

Harvested at the end of September or beginning of October, grapes undergo soft pressing, fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats at 25°-28° and extraction of the noble compounds from the skin with the help of periodic pumping-over. Maceration on the skin lasts about 18 days. Vinification is followed by 4 months in stainless steel vats and another 4 months in the bottle before being released on the market.

Tasting Notes

Rather intense and deep ruby red with lively and bright rim. Spicy and fresh bouquet with decisive notes of sage and Mediterranean herbs. Very soft and big start in the mouth, pleasant, it opens on the palette to even richer spicy hints. Medium concentrated wine on the finish, still soft and present tannins but velvety.

Food Pairing

Served at 16° to 18°, it is an excellent match for simple first dishes including fish.

Ageing Potential

Lo Spepo fully expresses its youthful characteristics immediately thanks to its freshness and decisive fruity notes.
