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.

VinificationThe 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 servedExcellent with rich first courses and red meat, also goes well with game and medium-seasoned cheeses.
