Rosso Negroamaro-Cabernet-Primitivo IGT (Typical Geographical Indication) Puglia
Negroamaro - Primitivo - Cabernet Sauvignon
A selection of grapes cultivated at our Maime estate in S. Pietro Vernotico and at our Bocca di Lupo estate in Minervino Murge.
The grapes were picked at a proper level of ripeness and fermented separately in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Skin contact, at temperatures held to a maximum of 79° Fahrenheit (26° centigrade), lasted from eight to ten days. The malolactic fermentation was completed by the start of winter.
An eight month period of aging in stainless steel tanks then followed. A small part of the wine, however, was aged in oak barrels, used three or four times previously, and then added to the blend.
