PUGLIA IGP PRIMITIVO
Production area: Countryside around Cerignola
Grape variety: 100% Primitivo
Yield per hectare: 70 q
Harvest period: Last week of August
Soil type: Clayey-limestone
Training system: Spurred cordon
Vinification: The harvest takes place in mid-August, when the grapes are fully ripe and very aromatic. Destemming is followed by soft crushing and maceration with fermentation in stainless-steel vessels for 15-20 days at a controlled temperature, and then pressing. The resulting wine is aged for 2 months in stainless-steel tanks and then in French oak barriques for 12 months, before returning to stainless-steel fermentation vessels for a further 3 months. It is subsequently bottled and aged for another 4 months prior to release.
Sensory characteristics: Deep ruby hue, with prominent notes of ripe fruit and vanilla. The nicely balanced palate is full, dry and attractively soft, with nice length. A complex wine, with good structure and warmth.
Food pairings: Pasta with tasty sauces, grilled meat, and mature cheeses.
