Comments

Primitivo is one of the most ancient grape variety of Italy and it has been recognized to be the Zinfandel that is grown in California. This masculine wine expresses the best characteristics of the Southern sunshine hills rolling to the see.

In August we do the "Green Harvest" leaving on the vine only the best grapes that are wisely hand picked during the night to protect them from the hot weather of Puglia. Quickly transported to the winery they are di-stemmed, soft pressed and fermented in temperature controlled stainless still vats. The Primitivo macerate on the skins in still vat for 10 to 15 days and then after been racked it finishes the fermentation in oak barrels for about 25 days. After other three month of resting in the barrels Primitivo is stabilized and bottled. Perfect with roasted and grilled meats, game and aged cheeses. Served at 64° F.

This wine comes from the Joint Venture between Nicola Biscardo and Andrea Tinazzi owner of Corte Vecchia, in order to develop and supply southern Italian wines with grace, elegance and constant proven quality.
