Primitivo Di Manduria 2019

Capo Zafferano

Intense deep red color, almost impenetrable. On the nose recalls red-berried fruits with hints of vanilla, toasted notes and spices which give complexity to the bouquet. The great tannic structure is perfectly balanced on the palate and in aftertasting as well.
Food Pairing   Great wine for roasted and grilled meats. Ideal with game dishes. Excellent with mature hard cheeses.
Best served at a temperature of   18˚C > 20˚C
14.5% ABV
Capo Zafferano is a famous promontory, with a great view of gulf with turquoise water and secular white lighthouse, so characteristic that we wanted it to represent the best expression of South Italy wines, in particular Puglia wines: a wine region with a unique macro-climate, being enclosed between three seas, where grapes have been cultivating and vinifacted for more than 3000 years. The wines from Puglia have a sweet and juicy fruit, with a soft and enveloping body, but always characterized by the typical saltiness of the wine-growing areas that are close to the sea. At the top of this production stand out the red wines produced by “appassimento”, the drying of grapes: a technique used in that area since the ancient Romans, which allows a slight dehydration of the bunches, concentrating their organoleptic qualities and enhancing wine aromas.
