2013 harvest has been a very good year for Cantine Due Palme, resulting in healthy grapes, excellent sugar content and great awards.
For the seventh consecutive year, Selvarossa Salice Salentino DOP Reserve 2010 has been awarded with the Tre Bicchieri Gambero Rosso 2014, the most popular and trend setter guide in Italy.
As a proof of its success, the Selvarossa 2010 also came first in the guide Duemilavini 2014 – edited by Bibenda and the Association of Italian Sommeliers – gaining the Cinque Grappoli Award, top prize.
The extraordinary success of Cantine Due Palme continues with the announcement of an important prize to the wine Serre Susumaniello Salento IGP 2011: the Super Tre Stelle Guida Oro I vini di Veronelli 2014.
“At the end of an incredible harvest we are collecting great approval by the most important guides, representing today a consumers’ reference point”, declares the President and Winemaker Angelo Maci.
This year, from the 2,400 hectares of vineyards cultivated by its members, Cantine Due Palme production has been set at 26 million and 200 thousand kilograms of grapes, with an increase of 15% over the last year and an average Babo degree of 19.90.
Good weather of last summer favoured good acidity and high concentration of sugar in grapes, even more than during the last years.
“We started on 6th August with Negroamaro grapes for sparkling wine, the first ones to be picked. Next, most of the white wine grapes were harvested, one week before than what happened during the last 10 years. Excellent quality for Falanghina, picked some days later than other white grapes and Primitivo, whose harvest was initially delayed but that quickly made up for lost time”, Mr. Maci explains.
In the meanwhile, the cooperative’s annual turnover continued to rise, with an increase of 24% over the last year and a total amount of 28 million euros.
It really can be said it was a five-star year!
We are proud to stare this success with you and all our followers. United, we grow!
