Grape variety: 100% Primitivo

Vinification: In the cellar, the grapes are destemmed and conveyed to stainless-steel fermentation vessels, where they are kept at a temperature of 10-12°C for 24-36 hours. Then they are inoculated with cultured yeasts and fermented at a constant temperature of 26-27°C. After fermentation, the grapes are pressed and the resulting wine is transferred back into stainless steel tanks, where it is aged for approximately 3 months, before filtering and bottling, where it remains for around 2 more months before its release.
Sensory characteristics: Deep, impenetrable hue, with purple highlights. The particular fermentation process ensures that the wine preserves the typical characteristics of the grape variety and enhances the fruity notes.
