    12 e Mezzo Primitivo del Salento IGP 2017 - Varvaglione

    The 12 e Mezzo Primitivo del Salento from Varvaglione comes with a dense, but not yet opaque purple red in the glass. Here this modern primitivo immediately unfolds an expressive bouquet full of red and black fruits. Above all, ripe plums and juicy black cherries come to mind, supplemented and blue and blackberry nuances. Delicate hints of vanilla and fragrant cocoa notes perfectly round off the bouquet of the 12 e Mezzo Primitivo.

    The Varvaglione 12 e Mezzo Primitivo de Salento starts pleasantly fresh and light on the palate. So beautiful to see (better: to taste) that Primitivo can also function as a light summer wine and does not have to be bulky either in the bottle or in the glass. Here fruity freshness, a restrained residual sweetness and finest tannin dominate. A primitivo that is just slightly chilled and suitable for all seasons.

    Vinification of the 12 e Mezzo Primitivo from Varvaglione

    For this series Marzia, Angelo and Francesca clearly faced the biggest problem that many wine drinkers have with red wine from Apulia - the high alcohol content. For their 12 e Mezzo series, the three of them already submitted to a strict target in their name, because the wines should not have more than 12.5% vol. By harvesting a part of the grapes very early, a moderate alcohol content is guaranteed and, in addition, a freshness is ensured that many a red from southern Italy lacks.

    After fermentation, the 12 e Mezzo Primitivo matures for 3-6 months in American oak barriques, adding spice and complexity to its fruit.

    Food recommendation for the Varvaglione Primitivo of the 12 e Mezzo series

    Enjoy this pleasantly light-footed red wine from Puglia with pork medallions with bacon and grilled mushrooms or with hot fried and lamb salmon with couscous and Ras el Hanout.
