Primitivo di Manduria

Made in the Taranto area, named after the town of the same name in the part of Puglia once known as Messapia. It is made from 100% Primitivo grapes, bush-trained and hand harvested to permit careful selection. It is fermented with 10-12 days of skin contact at a controlled temperature of 20°C with constant pumping-over and delestage, then undergoes malolactic fermentation in steel. Ruby red to purple in colour, with an intense fragrance of ripe red fruit, aromatic herbs and berries.
