2017 Perrini Primitivo


Perrini 100% Primitivo comes from 35 year old vines, with some getting up to 60 years, with full southern exposure on flat and slightly hilly sites. The soils are a mix of sand, limestone and clay, with a rockier nature on the slightly higher-elevation sites. The farming is certified organic. The well-ripened but not overly ripened fruit is harvested by hand into small baskets and whisked to the winery to cool down. The grapes are pressed and the juice fermented with natural yeasts in stainless steel tanks with maceration lasting 12-14 days. The wine is aged in stainless steel

The Primitivo is intense ruby red in colour with brilliant purple. On the palate notes of black wild fruits like bitter cherry and spices. 
Best paired with roasted, braised and barbecued meats, fried dishes, medium ripe cheeses, sausages.
‘…it has a marked varied nature, consistent, typical of Salento richness. This is another delicious Perrini’s Red wine. Wine owns a great limpidity and fidelity tobacco, smoke, sweet flavors and wild bitter cherry notes. Silk full and delicates sensations, tannins daintiness, elegant and round with gratifying endnote…”   Robert Parker
