Tasting Notes 

This wine has a deep ruby red colour with violet reflections. On the nose, it has intense red berry fruit perfumes. Full-bodied with firm tannins, it is well balanced with lots of ripe fruit flavours. Vegan & vegetarian. 

Grape variety: 100% Primitivo.

Vineyards: The vineyards are mostly situated in the communes of Manduria and Sava and are owned by growers with whom Filippo has been working for many years. Production is lower than its potential, which ensures the best quality grapes are selected. The red soils are calcareous clay and rich in iron, minerals and nutrients. 80% of the grapes come from old bush vines and the rest from trained vines that are at least 20 years old.

Vinification: The grapes were destemmed and then gently pressed and cooled to 10ºC for a maceration period of 8-10 days with regular pumping over. Yeasts were added to start fermentation, which took place under temperature-controlled conditions of up to 20ºC. The wine was then transferred to stainless-steel tanks where malolactic fermentation was carried out.

Best served with: Excellent with rich first courses and red meat, also goes well with game and medium-seasoned cheeses.
