The Primitivo grapes are selected from low-yielding, fully organic vineyards in the Salento area of Southern Puglia. Intense ruby-red color, with a complex bouquet, reminiscent of cherries, dried berries and toasted almonds. In the mouth it is full-bodied yet smooth and elegant with a silky texture. The finish is long and lingering, with a burst of spiced cherries and bright fruit and earthiness at the end.
