ALL OUR GRAPES HAVE CERTIFIED ORGANIC STATUS
Our Cantiniere Primitivo is a red wine grape and is the third-most planted grape in Puglia, Southern Italy. This Cantiniere is an elegant ruby red with spicy notes.
Aromas of cinnamon, raspberry and fruit punch with smoky notes.
Taste: Velvety, supple tannins, flexible and friendly. Strong, but not mouth-drying at all! Hints of plum,blackberry and black cherries, brown sugar, and baking spice. A nice, long finish. A good structure and characterized by soft and ripe tannins.
Our labels have a personal meaning but all reflect either a story, the history of Italy or the grape.
HOW WE NAMED IT - Cantiniere Primitivo: The name ‘Cantiniere’ originates from the Italian ‘Cantina’ meaning cellar. The Italians called those who worked in the cellars a ‘Cantiniere’. Their role was to keep the wine barrels/bottles clean, remove the rodents and insects and turn the wines. They were usually paid in wine! Our Cantiniere Primitivo is in honour of this important, traditional role within a winery – to the Cantinieres around the world – salute!
