THE WINE A lush Primitivo loaded with flavours of dark berries, cherry and plum, with accents of warm baking spice and dried fruit character. Juicy ripe fruit is perfectly balanced with racy acidity and fine-grained tannins for a smooth rounded finish.
THE REGION Salento is the heel of Italy, a sun-kissed peninsula at the southern tip of the Puglia wine growing region. It boasts a picturesque coastline, deep-blue seas and a rural landscape full of olive groves and vineyards spotted with ancient villages. Grown here for centuries, Primitivo is a flagship grape and a source of pride. The hot and dry climate is tempered by cool breezes from the surrounding seas making for excellent growing conditions.
THE FOOD Pair with dishes typical to the region such as Eggplant Parmesan or a rustic style pizza with sausage and onions. A perfect companion for barbecue, bold cheeses and grilled vegetables.
