Primitivo, Casato di Melzi
From a leading Salento grower. Gorgeous and powerful aromas of blackberry and chocolate on the palate, with a very pleasant fruity sweetness. The bouquet is also intense, and a long powerful rich finish is the icing on the cake.
From selected Primitivo grapes, picked by hand during the first days of September. The grapes are de-stemmed and vinified according to a soft processing. The maceration takes place in steel tanks. The fermentation process is completed without exceeding 20°C. Cultivated on a medium hilly terrain: clay, calcareous to medium texture and littered with karst rocks, which is rich in minerals. The red soil mixed with limestone and siliceous rocks are present in thin layers over imposing monolithic beds rich in marine fossils.
