Primitivo's modern-day home is in southern Italy, particularly Puglia. It is a dark-skinned grape which is hand-picked. The name Primitivo translates roughly as "early one" and refers to the variety's early-ripening nature. Once the grapes have been picked, they are macerated at a temperature not exceeding 26°c. We then age this popular, full-bodied ruby red wine for 8-12 months in steel barrels then a further 6 months in the bottle (in aging rooms completely excavated in the limestone rock typical of the territory where this wine is born).
Our Cantiniere Primitivo is a full-bodied, elegant ruby red. On the nose, it is rich and broad with hints of plum, blackberry and amarena cherry, which results in an intensely flavoured and deeply colored wine. On the palate it is clearly thick, soft and rightly tannic.
Thanks to the hints of plum, blackberry and black cherries, it is perfect for seasoned meats: venison, roasts and all types of cheese.
From Puglia, Italy, with love ❤️
