Made in Torricella by Giordano Wine Makers, it is the result of a careful selection of the most mature and expressive grapes grown where climate and land offer the best cradle possible.

Characteristics

The colour is dark red with garnet reflections and swirling venation that fill the gaze with promises of taste. Olfactory profile that is typical of the vine, with intense notes of ripe fruit and very slight shadows of spice. On the palate it excites emotion: velvety, well-structured, full. The wine's sojourn in wood gives Salento IGT Primitivo evocative spicy notes and sculpts its roughness to produce a soft and fascinating character.

Vinification

The Pizzicanto dance begins at harvest, with the scrupulous selection of grapes that are matured to the right point. The degree of ripeness is a key factor in the yield of Salento IGT Primitivo; this is why our experts examine the grapes daily until they determine the perfect time for harvesting. This wine comes from the heart of Salento, where the composition of climate and soil is ideal for the development of Primitivo. The grapes are grown in small plots in areas of rare harmonious expression.

A period of rest in wood completes the maturation process for Salento IGT Primitivo: a silent sleep, away from the clamour and energy of Pizzica. And yet, in that sleep shine dreams of impetuous waves and of dances close to the sea, of sunsets of fire, of pink-fingered dawns ... Wonder that remains closed in the bottle, ready to be experienced at the first sip.

Tasting

Sip Salento IGT Primitivo with your eyes closed. In the silence of tasting, the echo of the Mediterranean soul will resound and ignite memories and imagination.
