100% Primitivo grapes from selected vineyards, harvested the first week of September, and fermented in stainless steel tanks. On the nose, it displays aromas of plums and red fruit jam. It is a full bodied wine, with notes of blackberries, ripe fruits and spices with soft tannins. This is an excellent, well- balanced wine with a long finish.

Masseria Altemura Estate’s mission is to offer a new perspective on the wines from the Southern Italian Region of Apulia. Geographically, the Estate lies in the centre of Apulia, between the Ionian and the Adriatic Seas which lap the shores of the region. A unique maritime climate and abundant sunlight provide Masseria Altemura with very favourable conditions for grape growing.
Deep and dull ruby red.
The nose reveals full, intense aromas reminiscent of plums and red fruit jam with sweet spicy notes.
A wine with considerable body, the palate is enveloping, warm and soft and expresses very ripe fruit, backed by a pleasurable backbone of sweet tannins.
Excellent with full- flavoured first courses, white and red meats either grilled or served with sauces, ideal with roast lamb and matured cheeses but not marbled cheeses.
