Vigneti del Salento Zolla Primitivo di Manduria DOP

2013

In a Nutshell

Stunning fruit quality and depth of flavour - the very best of Primitivo

Tasting Notes

Ruby red colour with violet tones. Intense and complex perfumes of red cherries and blackberries, with some spice and leather which follow on to the palate. This wine has a rich and velvety texture, generous tannins and great length.

Production Notes

The grapes were gently pressed and cooled to 10ºC for a maceration period of 10-12 days with regular pumping over. Yeasts were added to start fermentation, which took place under temperature controlled conditions of up to 20 ºC. The wine was then transferred to second and third passage oak barriques for six to eight months before bottling.

Producer - Vigneti del Salento

This is the Puglia venture of the Farnese group (responsible for Gran Sasso, Vesevo and Tufarello ). The wines were made at two wineries in the province of Taranto on the western flank of Salento. The style of the wines – fresh whites, soft and generous reds – will be familiar to those who buy their other wines, as winemaker Filippo Baccalaro is the driving force behind this new label.

Press Quotes & Awards

For those who like soft jammy juicy cherry-fruited reds, Filippo Baccalaro’s Primitivo is deliciously smooth, velvet textured and so easy to drink. Eight months in French oak has softened and enhanced this Primitivo. Its 14% alcohol level seems so in balance with the rest of the wine.

Rose Murray Brown MW, “Primitivo Taste Test”, rosemurraybrown.com

Well-made, silky, complex, velvety and smooth palate, yet it has power and a perfect balance of fruit and acidity.
