The production consists of a range of 11 wines, most of which are monovarietals.
Tenute Rubino’s beating heart is the modern cellar, an avant-garde structure for the precision oenology. The vinification apparatus is the most advanced and reductive-cold technology is used in the different phases of the vinification process. The works for the construction of the cellar, which began in 1999 and ended in 2004, gave life to a structure with consistent productive capacity and on line with the growing expectations of the company. The wine-making procedures are sensitive to the peculiarities of each varietal located in its specific vine-site. All the viticulture practices are carried out according to specific policies respectful of each single variety. It is a complex process that requires efficient organization. Tenute Rubino utilizes small and medium-sized fermentation tanks in order to allow a regular pumping over and obtain a satisfying extraction of tannins and of the varietal aroma. Slow fermentation is carried out at a temperature not exceeding 25°C in order to prolong the yeast action and complete sugar transformation. After the drawing off and the soft pressing of the skins, the wine starts ageing either in steel tanks or French (300) or American (100) wood barrels. Each label has a different ageing period. The wines are constantly tasted and monitored to assure a balanced evolution.
The wines are conceived right from the vineyards. The distinctive features that make them unique and different depend on pedoclimatic factors and soil characteristics typical of that productive area and from the complex, attentive cultivation procedures carried out during the year. No secret alchemy, only great dedication and attention. One single, fundamental rule is observed: Respect and enhance the quality of the grapes in order to obtain elegant and competitive wines of territory, able to catch custormers’ taste. The production consists of a range of 11 wines, most of which are monovarietals. They give light to a high quality company production and are sold at the correct price for the market. The pleasantness of its floral notes, the harmonious flavour of ripe red fruit and the aromatic power of its indigenous varieties make Apulia a benchmark for quality wine.
