"An amazing bargain... this is dense, rich, powerful stuff, its tannins stretching through the spicy, mineral-laden red fruit like runner's muscles, long and strong. Drink it now with bacon-wrapped pork loin, but make sure to stash a few bottles in the cellar, too: this should hold well for at least another five years."
-Wines & Spirits
Primitivo is sourced from vineyards located between the provinces of Lecce and Brindisi and planted with a density of about 5,000 units per hectare. Average age of the vines is between 35 and 40 years. In the new, modern cellar the wine is fermented in stainless steel vats where for the most part it also ages, although certain amount spends up to six months in wood.
