"Colle dei Grillai" Castel del Monte DOC 2018 - Cantine Carpentiere

Colle dei Grillai, Castel del Monte DOC proposed here by the Carpentiere brothers, is the fruit of a careful manual harvest in boxes of Nero di Troia and Merlot grapes. After harvesting, the bunches are quickly brought to the cellar and placed in cold storage waiting to be pressed. This is followed by traditional red vinification, with fermentation in steel tanks activated by indigenous yeasts. An elegant and pleasant red wine, Colle dei Grillai does not mature in wood but is only refined in steel before bottling. Ruby red with violet reflections, this wine has elegant aromas, with hints of blackberry and morello cherry, small red fruits and balsamic and vanilla notes. Pleasantly refined, tannic and structured, this wine offers a well-balanced and persistent sip. Colle dei Grillai is not afraid of the tastiest combinations. It accompanies meat dishes well but also goes perfectly with traditional soups.

The Cantine Carpentiere winery is a beautiful family business, run with passion and expertise by brothers Luigi and Vincenzo Carpentiere. We are located in the heart of the Alta Murgia National Park, in Apulia. The winery can now count on a total of 18.5 hectares of property, mainly on hilly terrain, at an altitude of 450 metres, not far from the iconic Castel del Monte of Frederick I of Swabia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The company, founded in 1997, continues an old family tradition. In fact, the grandfather of the current owners already produced wine. The entire estate falls under the DOC Castel del Monte. There are historical vineyards, in particular Nero di Troia and Bombino Nero. The winery is modern and functional, to guarantee the highest standards of quality.
