Wine Details







Wine Description

(From 2010 Vintage) Deep dense wine with perfume, spice, violet, vanilla and dark berry fruits. "Chocolates blackberry gateau", complex, rounded tannins, persistent, fruits. This wine is soft with a suave perfume; its fruit is first of all a masterpiece of nature…blackberry and minty oak spices with a full roundness to its tannin and admirable structure and acidity.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) Vinification Hand harvested in small baskets. Maceration: 18 days with local yeasts. Thermo-controlled fermentation at 24-26C. Vineyards Selected vineyards of Neviera and Casa Rossa, located in San Marzano district. The soil is mainly ’terra rossa’, with a fine texture and generally a calcareous underground with a few emerging rocks. The well-known redness of these soils is due to the presence of iron oxides. The climate is characterised by high temps all year round, little rainfall and a wide temp range between night and day, which has a positive influence on the quality of grapes. This is the ’classical’ central area of d.o.c. ’Primitivo di Mandria’
