Primitivo di Manduria
Denominazione di Origine Protetta

Grown in the lean coastal soils of the Ionian Sea. Primitivo vines are planted straight into the sand or can be found in areas where there is exposed fissured limestone rock, where the plant roots find cool shelter from the summer’s heat. These are grown in small, pocket handkerchiefs of land where all the work is still done by hand. The summers here are hot and dry with a significant difference between night and day temperatures; conditions that create wines with complex polyphenol structures. Grown along the coastline, the plants inhale the briny sea breezes and the fragrance of the Mediterranean scrub, perfumes that reappear in the wines.
