TERRITORY: The Salento region is identified by three climatic elements: the sun, the architect that creates generous degrees of sugar, the sea, responsible for the minerality of the wines, and the wind that makes this area naturally free of disease and particularly suitable for the production of “natural” wines. Characterized by extensive flat areas and modest hilly reliefs, the Salento region is geologically constituted by a calcareous structure of medium texture.

VARIETY INFORMATION: Primitivo is a black berry vine native to Puglia, owes its name to the characteristic vegetative phases of the plant, all early, from ripening to sprouting, from flowering to veraison, hence the old name “Primaticcio”.

AROMAS: Intense and decisive aromas of black cherry jam and wild strawberries, elegant spicy liquorice notes.

PALATE: Round in the mouth, with good structure, tannins are present but balanced, and the there is a return of those fruity notes of fruits preser- ved in alcohol already perceived by the nose.

VINIFICATION: Traditional fermentation methods are employed with a floating cap, at a controlled temperature (27-28 degrees), carried out in large Slavonian oak vats, the contents are frequently pumped over. This is followed by a long stay of the must on the skins; about thirty days, in order to extract as much polyphenolic substances as possible to facilitate the start of the subsequent malolactic fermentation in barriques.
