Thanks to the solar energy captured by the foliage and the intensity of the light reflected by the limy, mineral soil, the specially selected, hand-picked bunches of this Primitivo give rise to a modern interpretation of the principal grape of Puglian winemaking. The balsamic and spicy notes of this red create an attractive harmony with the nuances of blackberries, bilberries, violets and chocolate. Extreme freshness, rich, fleshy fruit and rounded, gentle tannins make this a cru with great purity of flavour and one that encapsulates the inebriating spirit of a peninsula that yields emotions galore. This austerely elegant and impenetrably opaque red bears the name of the Masseria Altemura estate and represents the finest expression of a Primitivo from Torre Santa Susanna, one of the three communes in the Province of Brindisi belonging to the Manduria D.O.C..

Please note, the image shown may not be representative of the stated vintage.
100% Primitivo di Munduria grapes, aged for 14 months in 350- litre French oak barrel followed by a further 6 months in the bottle before being released. Complex and full bodied with fine structure. On the nose it displays intense aromas of plums and black fruit with a hint of white pepper. This wine has the potential to evolve well over time.
Vivid ruby-red colour with purple shadings
An intense and distinct aroma of jam-like ripe red and black fruit.
A very warm, silky, and almost dense flavour, rich in varietal and territorial sensations.
The great softness and richness of its structure make it perfect for red meat dishes as well as for spicy courses; think penne all'arrabbiata.
