From Vallone's Brindisi estate, a ripe, generous and well-balanced style of Primitivo

Production

The Primitivo grapes were sourced from Vallone's Brindisi estate - from a 15ha vineyard with limestone-clay soil. The grapes are typically harvested at the end of August / start of September. Fermentation and maceration take place at controlled temperatures for 15 days, followed by spontaneous malolactic fermentation. Maturation takes place in steel and concrete tanks for around 3 months.

Tasting Note

Warm, open nose with ripe plum and cherry aromas and hints of brown spice. The palate is richly flavoured with sweet blackberry and plum fruit, supple tannins and a rounded, spicy finish
