Made from organically grown Primitivo grapes, this red wine aged in stainless steel tanks expresses all of the grape’s varietal notes: intense ruby red, ripe red fruit bouquet, soft taste. It is full-bodied and with a long finish, ideal to pair with rich first courses, red meat and hard cheese.

Land of Primitivo di Manduria, at the gate of the wild Salento, in Puglia. This land is known for its long summers, its heat swirling all through the vines, and for the cool night breezes that blow through the countryside.
Farmers’ hands made red by the soil, burnt by the zenith sun; fiery sunsets that repeat an ancient miracle during harvest.

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: Destemming of the grapes and maceration at a controlled temperature of 25°C as long as the alcoholic fermentation lasts. The next step is the soft pressing of the grapes and the consequent start of the malolactic fermentation. Aged in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes: Deep ruby red with crimson reflections; rich of mature fruit, cherries and plums, with notes of coffee and black pepper. A full-bodied wine, soft and balanced, with a pleasantly lingering aftertaste.
