Salento Primitivo I.G.T.
A wine sourced purely from Primitivo grapes grown and harvested throughout Lizzano, Torricella and Taranto. The long maceration of the skins provides a rich extraction and an intense, deep ruby red color with a particular aroma of blackberry and plum. The smoothness of its palates amazes as its flavor whole and persistent with a pleasant sweetness in the end. An ideal complement to meats, game and cheeses.
End of agoust, some of the grapes are partially dried on the plants for about 15-20 days before harvest.
Light pressing, maceration for about 15 days with controlled temperature (28/30°) in steel tank.
"red soil" is a type of red clay soil produced by the weathering of limestone, typical of Manduria’s area.
