Primitivo di Manduria DOC
TYPE OF WINE
Still red wine
The DOC Primitivo production area extends on the hills and coastal plains of the southern part of Apulia Region, in the Provinces of Brindisi and Taranto (South-Italy)
Good exposure and ventilation typical of a peninsula surrounded by sea. Soils are mainly clayey, but you can also find fine and calcareous soils with limited thickness and excellent drainage or red soils, stony, and rich in minerals.
As early ripening variety, harvest takes usually place in August, at latest at the beginning of September.
Pressing and maceration to extract the colour and soft tannins. Fermentation at controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks with frequent remontages and pumping over. Wine rests and refines for at least 6 months before bottling.
Intense ruby red with garnet hints
The fragrance is very intense and reminiscent of red fruits jam, blackcurrant and cherry marmalade. Ethereal notes of cacao, liquorice and vanilla.
In the mouth warm, round and smooth, with fruity notes, soft tannins and an ethereal after taste.
Perfect with cold cuts appetizer, vegetable soup, red meat and cheeses. Has a sustained body, which can be combined to complex red meats dishes too.
Serving at room temperature, about 18-20°C. We suggest to uncork the bottle at least a couple of hours before enjoying it.
