Chakra Essenza

Chakra Essenza is the fruit of a centuries-old vineyard lovingly cultivated in the heart of Puglia, between the Canale di Pirro and the Valle d'Itria, by Tonetta and Toniuccio, a married couple in their nineties. Essenza is a tribute to the unconditional love between a man and his vines. Chakra is a fusion of the energies of earth, air and man. The labels, entirely hand-painted, enclose a prestigious artisan production, faithful to a magnificent terroir that has always been a source of inspiration for the wine.

Variety

100% Verdeca

Vinification

A part of the grapes is harvested a few days in advance in order to obtain the "pied de couve", so as to guarantee the rest of the mass a fermentation with autochthonous yeasts. The remaining part of the grapes is crushed and destemmed, then softly pressed, whereas the must is fermented in steel tanks at controlled temperature. One third of the mass is vinified with maceration of skins.

Maturation

At the end of fermentation, after the first racking, the wine remains on its fine lees for one year. Continuous batonnage increases the volume and harmonizes the taste.

Aging

In bottles, for 6 months.

The uniqueness of the Chakra Rosso lies in the innovative vinification technique "vendanges entières", used in the domaines of the Côte d'Or in Burgundy. The carefully selected bunches are used whole in open vats.

Sparkling white wine refermented in the bottle, with a thin and continuous perlage. It is done as it once was, following the techniques inherited from family activity. The lack of disgorgement is its strong point, its beauty and its goodness.

Giovanni Aiello's rosé moves vigorously in the glass. A particular wine, which is born in a shallow, clayey and calcareous soil, where the roots of the plants creep into the karstic fissures.

The Chakra Verde comes from the vineyards located in the magnificent area known as "Canale di Pirro", on the slopes of Valle d'Itria, a wide karst depression in the heart of the Murgia dei Trulli, a few kilometers from the Adriatic Sea.
