Parchitello Bombino Nero Rosato Castel del Monte DOCG
Puglia

This wine is made with 100% Bombino Nero, a native grape from Puglia. This grape is very high in phenolics, particularly anthocyanins, which has the potential to produce wines with a deep color. For this reason Bombino nero is often used in rosé production as it can quickly color the juice without requiring a long period of skin contact. Parchitello is the name given by the Ceci family to the parcel of land where the vineyard lie.
