Thanks to the solar energy captured by the foliage and the intensity of the light reflected by the limy, mineral soil, the specially selected, hand-picked bunches of this Primitivo give rise to a modern interpretation of the principal grape of Puglian winemaking. The balsamic and spicy notes of this red create an attractive harmony with the nuances of blackberries, bilberries, violets and chocolate. Extreme freshness, rich, freshy fruit and rounded, gentle tannins make this a cru with great purity of flavour and one that encapsulates the inebriating spirit of a peninsula that yields emotions galore. This austerely elegant and impenetrably opaque red bears the name of the Masseria Altemura estate and represents the finest expression of a Primitivo from Torre Santa Susanna, one of the three communes in the Province of Brindisi belonging to the Manduria D.O.C..
|The great softness and richness of its structure make it perfect for particularly tasty and succulent dishes as well as for very spicy or piquant courses, typical of the southern cuisine.
