Grapes: 100% Primitivo

Production area Apulia/Puglia, Salento

Vinification: The grapes used for Masso Antico Primitivo are grown using the vine training method known as “Alberello”, which has ancient origins and is typical of the Mediterranean area of Italy. It was developed to compensate the lack of water and the very hot climate. The now very rare Alberello system represents a very important part of the cultural and oenological heritage of Apulia. The rigorous hand-picking is followed by a meticulous selection of the destemmed grapes. The grape withering on plants, favored by the sea wind, and a slow maturation in French oak barrels for about 6 months results in an outstanding full-bodied wine with soft tannins that release vanilla notes in the finish.

Description Masso: Antico Primitivo, with its ruby red color and its complex bouquet, is characterized by intense and fine aromas, that go from mature fruit to spicy notes.

Food pairing: It pairs perfectly with grilled meat dishes, stew and aged cheeses.

Serving temperature: 16° – 18° C

    Always get satisfaction dealing with Sapori’Italia both with the service and wine quality. Delivery is quick and spot on, unlike many of the slap dash attitude of many courier companies. The Masso Antico Primitivo del Salento 2021, like most of their wines is an absolute delight.
