Rich and full with sweet fruit flavours

From the warmth of the Puglian hills comes this substantial Primitivo. In mid-August, when the grapes reach perfect maturity, the grapes are harvested and left to dry on straw mats in the sunshine for about 12 days thus ensuring a natural concentration of flavours. They lose about 25-30% of their weight. After destemming, the grapes are gently pressed, allowing the skin to remain intact and optimizing color extraction. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 22-25 C for 8-10 days. Frequent pumping over achieves soft extraction of aromas and gentle tannins. It is a full-bodied, rich and powerful wine with an intense ruby red colour. The nose is complex with aromas of ripe cherries, raspberries, redcurrants, plum spices and chocolate. On the palate, there are flavours of dried fruit, a slight raisin character, plums, damsons, garrigue and a hint of spice. The finish is rich and full with good, sweet fruit flavours in excellent balance.

I love Primitivo!

Beautiful bottle of wine at just £10.99.

Appassimento meaning dried out in the sun. For this wine 50% of the grapes do just that before being crushed lovingly alongside fresh grapes. The result, heaven 🍷😍
