Miopasso Primitivo is the perfect combination of local tradition and modern wine-making, being robust at the same time as smooth and silky. Rich in fruit, with a certain “savoury” feel, Miopasso Primitivo has an abundance of ripe, dark berry flavours.
Miopasso Primitivo is the perfect accompaniment to rich, meaty pasta dishes.
Vineyard info / Viticulture
Selected vineyards in Puglia’s Salento Peninsula in the Leverano area. The Salento peninsula has the perfect micro-climate for grape growing, with the harsh sun being tempered by the cooling breezes from the sea surrounding the region on three sides. This area has typical Mediterranean climate, with significant day-night temperature swings, playing a key role in the ideal maturation of the grapes. It is this microclimate that gives the grapes intense aromas and great personality.
The Primitivo grapes are transported in small containers so that they are not crushed by their own weight, after which they are very softly destemmed, taking care to keep the skins intact. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of between 22-24°C, with frequent pumping over of the must in order to achieve the best extraction of colour, a lovely bouquet and soft tannins in the finished wine. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine is kept on its fine lees until the end of February/March.
