Comments

"PriNe" is a composite name that comes from the marriage between the two best grape grown in our estate: Primitivo and NegroAmaro. TENUTA CUREZZA is a portion of Feudo di San Nicola estate where the vineyard receive a special care (CUREZZA in Italian) in absolute respect of Mother Nature.
In August we do the "Green Harvest" leaving on the vine only the best grapes that are harvested with machines 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.
Primitivo and Negro Amaro macerate together on the skins in the same vat for 10 to 15 days and then after been racked they ferment for about 25 days. "PriNe" does not see any oak, but is the pure expression of those two incredible grapes.
The result is a complex and masculine wine perfect with pasta dishes, roasted meat and aged cheese, or by its own in a good conversation.
Serve at 64° F.
