Primitivo di Manduria DOP

Iconic red wine, one of the most typical of the region produced only from Primitivo grapes. Aged in French and American oak barrels, it gives off not only the varietal fruity notes but also cocoa and vanilla hints. It goes well with rich first courses, red meat, especially lamb, with rich sauces, hard cheese.

PRODUCTION AREA

Salento, Puglia. Vines are grown at an altitude of around 100 m above sea level with high average temperatures and medium-low rainfall. The soil is shallow and medium textured (sandy loam).

VINIFICATION AND AGEING

Thermo-controlled maceration and alcoholic fermentation for about 10 days with selected yeasts. Aged in French and American oak barrels for 5 – 6 months.

TASTING NOTES

Ruby red, enriched with violet reflections, generous perfume, which recalls ripe cherries and plums, with pleasant notes of cocoa and vanilla. This wine has a velvety texture, softened by the warmth of the Primitivo, and ends with notes of persistent sweetness.
