Vinification of Torrevento Since 1913 Primitivo
The Primitivo grapes grow on clayey soils in the IGT Puglia appellation.
The grapes are harvested in mid-September and immediately brought to the Torrevento wine cellar. There, the grapes are first fermented in stainless steel tanks. This is followed by maceration of the mash. Both stainless steel tanks (10 months) and barrique barrels (6 months) are used for ageing. Finally, this red wine rounds off harmoniously in the bottle before leaving the winery.
