Grape Variety: Primitivo

Vinification & Maturation:
Vinification is performed in steel vats and includes the typical carbonic maceration, in which temperature is controlled not to exceed 22°C. For several days the must is kept in contact with the skins, while continuous delestage ensures this wine is typical bright ruby red colour.
After an aging period in steel tanks, it is kept in barriques for 6 months and then bottled.
