Vinification of the Terre del Grico Primitivo Salento Rosso Salento Rosso D.O.P.
The powerful Primitivo Salento Rosso Salento Rosso D.O.P. from Italy is a single-varietal wine made from the Primitivo grape variety. The vines that produce the grapes for this wine grow on clay and limestone soils in Apulia. The grapes for the Primitivo Salento Rosso Salento Rosso D.O.P. are harvested exclusively by hand at the time of optimum ripeness, without the help of coarse and less selective harvesters.

Fermentation is followed by maturation for 24 months in American oak barrels. The ageing in the barrel is followed by extensive ageing in the bottle, which makes this red wine even more complex.
