VIGNETI DEL SALENTO ZOLLA PRIMITIVO DI MANDURIA
The wines of the 2017 vintage are the result of a harvest preceded by a cold and snowy winter, which was then followed by a hot and dry spring and summer. This weather favoured the red berry varieties producing excellent reds.
The vineyards are mostly situated in the communes of Manduria and Sava and are owned by growers with whom Filippo has been working with for many years. Production is lower than its potential, which ensures the best quality grapes are selected. The red soils are calcareous clay and rich in iron, minerals and nutrients. 80% of the grapes come from old bush vines and the rest from trained vines that are at least 20 years old.
Ruby red colour with violet tones. Intense and complex perfumes of red cherries and blackberries, with some spice and leather which follow on to the palate. This wine has a rich and velvety texture, generous tannins and great length.

My "significant other" and I love deep, dark chewable reds, and especially when you can find something that "punches above it's weight". This Primitivo is definitely something that belongs in everyone's wine cupboard
