Zinfandel Old True Zin, Ca’Vittoria
Zinfandel Old True Zin, Ca’Vittoria is fruity, with notes of plums, cherry marmalade, tobacco and spice followed by cocoa , coffee and vanilla on the finish. So well balanced by soft tannins and inviting freshness.
The Zinfandel IGT Puglia True Zin is, as its name may suggest, 100% Zinfandel. Perhaps better known for producing some questionable styles in the United States, Zinfandel can actually trace its routes back to Italy, where it is known under a slightly different strain as Primitivo. The maturing process takes place in stainless steel, wooden vats and then bottle before being unleashed upon its adoring public. This gives a real banker wine that is superb value for money.
The Rosso IGT Puglia Vino Appassimento Gold Release from Ca’Vittoria is a 60% Negroamaro, 25% Merlot, 15% Primitivo blend of grapes from Puglia. The vineyards are based in Salento where the grapes can achieve early and full ripeness with picking occurring as late as October. This gives a high level of sugar and high alcohol, required for the appassimento method. Ripe grapes mature on the vine for about 15 days, during which period 50% of their weight and moisture is lost. After a rigorous hand harvest, the grapes are pressed and the fermentation starts; the skins are left in the must for a long period to extract flavours and the characteristic ruby red colour. The wine is then left in oak for around 3-4 months. The resulting wine is concentrated and moreish.
Matches: barbequed vegetables and many Asian dishes.
Vegan Wines Online
As with all wines on this website, this wine has been made without animal products. This is not the case with so many wines that are commonly on sale in the UK. Far too many wines have animal products used as a so-called production aid; they will often have a large array of chemical additives as well. Have a look at our page on additives allowed in wines. Many vegan wines are also organic or better still bio-dynamically grown. The care taken in growing the grapes and making the wine comes through in the taste of the final product. This is a vegan wine.
