Negroamaro Riserva "LIRANU" DOP CONTI ZECCA
This Apulian red wine is a tribute to the city of Leverano, "Liranu" in the local dialect, where the Zecca family moved in 1500. For its production 100% Negroamaro grapes are used, grown on soils of alluvial origin with the presence of limestone. The manual harvest is followed by de-stemming and soft pressing with maceration for 8-10 days at a controlled temperature. The fermentation phase requires the permanence in steel tanks while the maturation takes place in oak barrels and subsequently in steel tanks coated with food resins.
