Why Primitivo 'Appassimento' Carlomagno, IGP Puglia?

From the warmth of the Puglian hills comes this substantial Primitivo. In mid-August, when the grapes reach perfect maturity, the grapes are harvested and left to dry on straw mats in the sunshine for about 12 days thus ensuring a natural concentration of flavours. They lose about 25-30% of their weight. After destemming, the grapes are gently pressed, allowing the skin to remain intact and optimizing colour extraction. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 22-25 C for 8-10 days. Frequent pumping over achieves soft extraction of aromas and gentle tannins. It is a full-bodied, rich and powerful wine with an intense ruby red colour.
  • Contains sulphites

  • The nose is complex with aromas of ripe cherries, raspberries, redcurrants, plum spices and chocolate. On the palate, there are flavours of dried fruit, a slight raisin character, plums, damsons, garrigue and a hint of spice.

  • Red meats and cheese
