Description

Deep ruby red with crimson reflections in the glass. The bouquet is filled with rich mature fruit, cherries and plums, with notes of coffee and black pepper. A full-bodied wine, soft and balanced, with a pleasantly lingering aftertaste.

This wine hails from San Marzano, Salento, Puglia. The area is about 100 meters above sea level and benefits from great diurnal temperature variations. The soft soil is shallow, quite thin and with a good texture.

Harvested the first week of August. Destemming of the grapes and maceration at a controlled temperature of 25°C as long as the alcoholic fermentation lasts. The next step is the soft pressing of the grapes and the consequent start of the malolactic fermentation. Aged in stainless steel tanks. Drinks wonderfuly over the next 5yrs.

Naca is the local name for a cradle, and Puglia is the cradle of Primitivo, a wine of elemental character, made from organically grown vines.

Food Pairing: Savory first courses, read meats and hard cheeses.
