Primitivo 2021, Integro, Puglia
Bright ruby red with touches of purple. The bouquet is pronounced, with notes of violets, sour cherries and blackberries, and some spices. On the palate it is envelopling and velvety, with pleasant touches of red and black cherries, and an excellent balance.
Integro is so called because the wine is integrated and is in perfect harmony with nature. The philosophy of the brand is to intervene only when absolutely necessary, thus ensuring that each grape can express its own individual personality.
De-stemming is followed by fermentation at 22-24 °C for 8-10 days, during which time remontage is carried out daily. Malolactic fermentation happens spontaneously, immediately after the alcoholic fermentation.
