Winery Valle dell 'Asso / wine region Puglia
Need his vines, as he says, no irrigation. They are "not spoiled" and seek out their nutrients by letting her roots grow deep into the stony earth. The vines are always irrigated would have no reason to make the effort to go in depth. This leads to the fact that the vines are comfortable and are vulnerable. On top of that would be wasted water because it evaporates quickly at the surface.
To the pleasant town gala Tina at the winery Valle dell 'Asso decades to grow healthy and robust vines. Oenologist Elio Minola and the owner Gino Vallone recently aware that they actually have always operated organic and sustainable agriculture. They were all certified vineyards. Only this year, the official recognition is first on the labels. The southern Italian wine to go in this respect, not always the easiest way. This makes them sympathetic!
Sympathetic is also consistently above-average quality of wine we find the year in the cellars of Valle dell'Asso. Whether it's the smooth, low-acid Chardonnay, Rosé from the idiosyncratic Negramaro grapes, or the selection of Rossi. These are vinified either unmixed Negramaro grapes or spicy, hearty Primitivo. Some Red show their potential in successful blends, such as the DOP Gala Tina Rosso. The only pity is that the road is so far, because the regional cuisine is quite a delightful companion to the sun-drenched drop from the heel of the boot.
