The I Muri Primitivo from Vigneti del Salento has an intense ruby red colour with violet reflections. It has a seductive bouquet of red and black fruits (cherries, plums and dark wild berries). On the palate this Italian red wine is wonderfully soft.
The fruity aromas of the bouquet are also present on the palate, where they are juicy and opulent. These are accompanied by an elegant spice of cedar wood and Mediterranean herbs. Velvety tannins accompany the full-bodied, strong body with a lot of melting and warmth.
Vinification of the I Muri Primitivo
For this Primitivo, the grapes grow in the Salento on red brick soils. This stores the heat and then releases it to the vines at night. This compensates for the large differences in temperature. With the breeze from the sea, these conditions favour the development of particularly intense fruit aromas.
After the harvest, the grapes are carefully destemmed and crushed. The must ferments on the skins for about 10 days. Malolactic fermentation is then carried out in stainless steel tanks. Part of the base wine is aged for some time in used barrels before being blended and bottled.
Food recommendation for the Vigneti del Salento I Muri Primitivo
