About Bombino Nero Rosato

The Bombino Nero grape is native of Puglia.

The name may derive from the shape of the bunch, which recalls a child (bambino) with raised arms.

The name Bombino could also mean "little bomb" in reference to the shape of its clusters.

Bombino Nero is also known as "Buonvino" (Good Wine) due to the high must yield.

Bombino Nero grape is atypical of Puglia: despite beeing late harvested (mid-October) in a region known for its hot climate, the grapes rarely reach optimal ripeness, maintaining a high level of acidity and low sugar.

Bombino Nero grapes have a thin skin with little color (pigment), unsuited for red wine but perfect for rosé wine production.

Bombino Nero is not a genetic mutation of Bombino Bianco (White) as originally thought.

Low tannins, good acidity and an explosion of fruit makes Bombino Nero Rosato easy to drink.

Bombino Nero Rosato DOCG

Bombino Nero Castel del Monte is a DOCG since October 2011.

The designation is located east of Bari, in the north-west of Murge Plateau.

Castel del Monte (the caste of the mountain) is a military fortress built in the 13th century and listed in the Unesco World Heritage List since 1996.
