"Pale pink. Delicate apricot, peach and herbal aromas and flavors. Harmonious acidity really extends the flavors on the long back end, but this still tastes rather tangy. Finishes long with sneaky concentration. The paler color with respect to Rivera’s other Rosato wine, simply called Rosé, is because Pungirosa is macerated on the skins for 24 hours but at only 5°C. 100% Bombino Nero."
"Rivera Rose’ Pungirosa has a light cherry hue. A fruit-rich bouquet with notes of rose, cherry and strawberry. Lovely and easygoing, a remarkably smooth rosato that finishes long, clean and with persistent floral notes. Very enjoyable as an aperitif and a perfect match to seafood appetizers, light soups and pasta dishes, baked fish, poultry and veal. Serve well chilled.
Bombino Nero is a red grape varietal grown exclusively on the Murgia hills of the Castel del Monte area. It is not suitable to producing full red wines because of its thin skin, uneven ripening of the bunches, and the grape’s high juice content. However, it produces lovely rose’ wines, very fresh and fruity. this unique grape allows the winemaker to vinify the natural free-run juice, without pressing." -Importer
