2009 Feudi di San Marzano 60 Sessantanni Old Vines Primitivo di Manduria, Puglia, Italy.
Selected vineyards of Neviera and Casa Rossa, located in San Marzano district. The soil is mainly “terra rossa”, with a fine texture and generally a calcareous undergound with a few emerging rocks. The well-known redness of these soils is due to the presence of iron oxides. The climate is characterised by high temperatures all year round, very few rainfalls and a wide difference of temperature between night and day, which has a nice influence on the quality of grapes. This is the “classical” central area of d.o.c. ”Primitivo di Manduria”
Intense ruby red colour, wide and complex to the nose, fruity, with prunes, cherry jam aroma, with notes of tobacco, slightly spicy. Full-bodied wine, soft and rich in fine tannins, with notes of cocoa, coffee and vanilla in the end Hand-harvested in small baskets. Maceration: 18 days with selected yeasts. Thermo-controlled alcoholic fermentation at 24-26° C. Rich and soft, this is a robust, multi-layered Primitivo, a premium example of the quality to be found in the Manduria region of Puglia. The fruit is accompanied by peaty, smokey, tobacco-like aromas and flavours. Throw in fresh cigar and a blast of incredibly smooth, rounded black fruit sweetness and you've got a winner
