Primitivo grape is the Italian equivalent of Zinfandel. This one is vinificated in steel and aged for 6/8 months in French and American oak barrels. Medium purple, with violet shades. Intense on the nose with plums and cherries leading to a nice finish of raisins and leather. Explosive palate of red fruit, blackberries, strawberries and cherries with a memorable spicy finish.
Vigneti del Salento produce this wine from the vineyards in San Marzano at an altitude of 100 mt above sea level. This area is known to be the lesser rainy area of Puglia and has a unique climate. Hot and sunny in the day, fresh and breezy over night. The combination with the soil rich of stones and minerals creates a perfect environment for the primitivo grapes. The winery harvests the grapes before the sunrise to preserve the integrity of the grape, keeping the quality perfect.
