Fatalone Primitivo Gioia del Colle DOC

2016

In a Nutshell

Wonderfully developed Primitivo from the famous Gioia del Colle DOC

Tasting Notes

Ruby red intense colour with violet glares. Scent and taste typically fruity of berries and slightly of black sour cherry and plum with some spicy and balsamic notes. A perfect balance of smoothness, freshness and minerality. Aftertaste of toasted almond, typical of a natural authentic Primitivo of Gioia del Colle.

Production Notes

Spontaneous fermentation of the must in contact with the skin for 240-300 hours at controlled temperature and just with autochthonous yeasts. Open-cycle process with frequent pumping of the must over the pomace. Natural malolactic fermentation. No addition of sulphites during the whole vinification process. Only after the end of the malolactic, re-integration of the sulphites lost during the vinification steps to restore the initial natural value.
