Aka Primitivo di Manduria DOC rosato
Aka is a rosè wine obtained from 100% Primitivo di Manduria grapes. The name of this label, produced by Produttori Vini Manduria, recalls the precious Japanese coral named "AKA": a red vivid and deep red coral, hard to work, but capable of giving jewelery of rare beauty and priceless value. Just like this coral, Primitivo is a grape variety that is difficult to vinify in rosé, because of the intense coloring feature of the grape; but if cleverly managed, it can offer a unique tasting of its kind.
Harvesting takes place at the end of August, when the typical summer heat of southern Italy is at its maximum. The tuffy limestone soil of the vineyards convey the traditional characteristics of Primitivo. Vinification takes place with skin contact for about 12 hours, followed by a temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
Bright coral pink colour. The wine has a great texture. A fragrant fruity bouquet expresses intense notes of red apple, fresh wild strawberries and raspberry. The palate is dry, soft, with a noticeable freshness, combined with a long-lasting taste-olfactory persistence, which characterizes the precise finish. We recommend serving it at a temperature of 10-12 °C.
FOOD MATCHING SUGGESTIONS
Fresh and versatile wine for all meals, in combination with meat starters, sush as bresaola carpaccio with rocket and Grana Padano cheese. It pairs well also with pasta and fresh vegetables or basil-tomatoe sauce, fish and light meats.
