QU.ALE
Blend of autochthonous and an international one chosen every year for a "democratic" wine wanted by ALessandra QUArta, to be served at different temperatures, vibrant, fresh and supportive.
TENUTE EMÉRA - Lizzano (TA) • APULIA

An ancient farmhouse and a modern subterranean cellar, with sustainable architecture. A few km away, an aristocratic hunting lodge surrounded by vineyards that run towards the nearby coast, raised between the two seas, where once the land was completely submerged. Essential soil, composed of sand, clay and silt, forms a good nutrient base and provides excellent drainage, while the sea breeze refreshes the vineyards during the night, after the sultry summer days.

QU.ALE speaks of its territory through a soft pressing of the must representative varieties: the sweetness of the Primitivo, the acidic structure of the Negroamaro and the spiciness of the Shiraz. The grapes were harvested separately in the second and third ten days of September, in the coolest hours of the morning, to protect the bunches from the sultry heat.

It is the "democratic" wine, symbol of Alessandra Quarta's social commitment and Claudio Quarta Vignaiolo, born to tell a different, fair, supportive, sustainable way of making wine and everything to be shared. QU.ALE – takes up the initials of her name but summarizes the three questions that Alessandra had in mind when she conceived it: in which world do we want to live? What future do we have to create? Which wine is sustainable?

The right and good option within the reach of all palates and at a controlled price, in a wine to be enjoyed lightly every day or to take to a party.
By choosing QU.ALE, you will donate 5% of the proceeds from each bottle to a No Profi Association that you can choose on the site, using the unique code on each bottle.

Tasting notes and pairings

Intense ruby red color. Round and creamy, this medium-bodied red features bright acidity and naturally light tannins framing lively flavors of strawberry jam, herb and spice. To drink at a red temperature (16-18 ° C) for classic combinations (try it on pizza!) Or fresh (8-10 ° C) for a light summer meal and an aperitif! QU.ALE does not discriminate between dishes, it accompanies them all!
