This classic Primitivo is deep ruby red in colour, with intense aromas of ripe red fruits and wild strawberries. It is full-bodied and well-balanced, with soft tannins and a spicy finish.
Like Il Faggio and Cento Cavalli, this wine is made by the Liberty Wines’ winemaking team in a privately owned and modern winery in the Salento peninsula. Our brief to the winemakers was simple: we wanted a clean, fresh and vibrant Primitivo that is both modern and typical of the variety. In order to achieve these objectives, the winemakers selected the fruit from the best parcels on the estate, ensuring ripeness but no shrivelling (as this gives raisiny fruit and harsh tannins to the wine).
The grapes for this wine come from flat-lying vineyards around the Puglia hills, near to the sea, planted at altitudes no higher than 100 metres above sea level. The Guyot-trained vines are planted in low vigour soils. The grapes were hand picked to ensure careful selection.
Grapes were picked by hand, then fermented at low temperatures to retain freshness. The tank was checked daily to ensure the amount of tannin extraction was right. The wine was aged in stainless-steel tanks until the final blend was assembled.
