Cacc’e mitt di Lucera Dop – CANTINA LA MARCHESA (75cl) DOP Puglia
Grape: 100% Nero di Troia
Did you know: The name of the Cacc’e Mitte DOC is very original and literally translates as “take out and put in”, an old traditional practice of renting tanks to farmers during harvest time. They were supposed to be quick and prepare to take out (Cacc’e) the must by the end of the day and allow the next farmer to fill the tank (Mitte) with their grapes.
Producer: Cantina La Marchesa was established 10 years ago by Marika and Sergio, whose passion for the land and winemaking led them to make their dream come true. Based in the town of Lucera, in the northern part of Puglia, their 14hectares of vineyards are just 300 mt from the cellar making harvesting as efficient as possible, in terms of time-cutting procedures and keeping the grape’s aromas intact, ensuring the quality of the final product. By fully respecting traditions and working just with Puglia native varieties such as Nero di Troia and Bombino Bianco, all processes are strictly carried out by hand by experienced high skilled workers. In Spring time, excessive leaves are removed in order to allow the warm Puglian sun to ripen the grapes, which later are pruned to let only the best clusters become wine. They strongly believe that a good wine can only be made if there’s passion and hard work in the vineyards. From growing the grapes to wine making, bottling and selling the final product, Cantina La Marchesa takes care of the whole production process.
Taste: Intense red fruit aromas with hints of underbush, licorice, and toasted notes. Medium body with a good tannic structure, and a lingering finish. Oak, red fruit and spice.
