Masseria Surani Heracles Primitivo di Manduria DOC

2017

In a Nutshell

Elegant Primitivo from Tommasi's Puglian project.

Tasting Notes

A deep ruby red in color, it offers fascinating complexity on the nose: from floral scents of violets to rich fruity ones of black and sour cherries and strawberries, along with underlying balsamic notes, licorice and aromatic herbs. On the palate it is broad, full-bodied and fruity, and wins you over with its polished tannins and vibrant finish, sustained by an attractive fresh vein of acidity.

Production Notes

12-15 days’ temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel, with pumping over 3 times a day. 12 months maturation in oak casks.

Grape Blend

Primitivo

Producer - Masseria Surani

Tommasi’s passion for wine and the desire to discover and select the very best in Italian winemaking brought them to Puglia. Around 80 hectares of land have been purchased in Manduria, in the Salento area, one of the finest zones for the cultivation of the Primitivo grape, where viticulture has extremely ancient origins, dating back to the time of Magna Graecia.

Press Quotes & Awards

Dried cedar, dried red cherries and lots of dried-meat and tar character. Balanced and very tight for this variety, boasting beautiful tension and agile acidity, not to mention concentrated dark fruit. Drink from 2021. 92 points

James Suckling

Good full ruby. Red cherry, dark plum and underbrush on the nose, complemented by sexy spices. Broad, lush and sweet, with a high-toned quality to the perfumed flavors of red berries and spices. Finishes broad and horizontal, with smooth, ripe tannins and nicely persistent spicy perfume. 90 points.
