PRIMITIVO DI MANDURIA DOC
AreaAgro di Torre di Santa Susanna, Salento.
Vinification and Maturation
The grapes, harvested in a state of advanced ripeness, are delicately pressed and destalked. The must then undergoes a process of fermentation of 21 days at a temperature of 25-28°C. (77-82°F.). When vinification is completed, the wine matures for 14 months in 350-
liter (92-gallon) tonneaux of French oak, followed by a further period of fining in the bottle.
ColourVivid ruby-red colour with purple shadings.
BouquetAn intense and distinct aroma of jam-like ripe red and black fruit.
FlavourA very warm, silky, and almost dense flavour, rich in varietal and territorial sensations.
Serving TemperatureIt should be served at about 18°C (64°F).
The great softness and richness of its structure make it perfect for particularly tasty and succulent dishes as well as for very spicy or piquant courses, typical of the southern cuisine.
