The vineyards for this wine are very close to the little town of Manduria in Puglia. They are south-facing and enjoy a very hot, Mediterranean climate. The Primitivo grapes are grown on bush vines, ripen early and are handpicked in early September. Fermentation is carefully controlled using a submerged cap system in order to extract delicate tannins and varietal fruit characteristics. Maceration lasts for 12-15 days at controlled temperatures not exceeding 28 ° C. Alcoholic fermentation and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel. Maturation on the lees for 3 months prior to release.

It is an intense purple colour which tends towards garnet with age. Inky and full-bodied, with great tannic, alcoholic and acidic structure balanced by luscious, fresh dark fruits, this is a gorgeous wine which is incredibly moreish and boasts a long, satisfying finish.
