Denomination: Primitivo Puglia PGI
Type: Red wine
Grape variety: Primitivo
Cultivation system: espalier
Vinification: the grapes, harvested at the right point of ripeness, are de-stemmed, pressed and conveyed to the winemakers. Here the must follows a temperature-controlled fermentation of about 6-8 days with continuous pumping over and punching down for at least the first two-thirds of the fermentation.
Colour: intense red with violet hues.
On the nose: it releases wide and fruity aromas reminiscent of red-berried fruits, plums, cherries and morello cherries.
On the palate: it is structured, intense but with an excellent balance, warm and enveloping.
Food pairings: it is best expressed with red meats and roasts but also pleasantly accompanies aged cheeses, dry pasta or topped with cream and béchamel.
Serving temperature: 18-20° C
