Primitivo di Manduria DOC
Agro of Torre di Santa Susanna, Salento
14% by volume
750 ml, 1.5l
Vivid ruby-red colour with purple shadings
An intense and distinct aroma of jam-like ripe red and black fruit.
A very warm, silky, and almost dense ﬂ avour, rich in varietal and territorial sensations.
It 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.
VINIFICATION AND AGEING
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 viniﬁ cation is completed, the wine ages for 14 months in 350- liter (92-gallon) tonneaux of French oak, followed by a further period of ﬁ ning in the bottle.
