Description

  • Red fruit
  • Black cherry jam
  • Cinnamon
  • Satisfying acidity

"Sweetly ripe and fragrant with blackberry, toasted spice, hazelnut and smoked game characters, the wine displays plump mouthfeel and velvety texture, finishing wonderfully long and soothing. Flavoursome and supple with gorgeous spicy/savoury nuances" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit Aug 2021

Deep red, heightened by brilliant purple reflections. Intense notes of red fruit, and plum and black cherry jam, accompanied by hints of vanilla and cinnamon. Soft and enveloping on the palate, the flavour is intense and persistent, invigorated by satisfying acidity.

Masseria Altemura is located in the heart of Puglia, halfway between the Ionian and the Adriatic Seas. A unique terroir, thanks to the extraordinary light, the fresh perennial breezes of the two seas and land dominated by white limestone rocks and the red soil of Salento. The estate extends within the Primitivo di Manduria DOC denomination, in the Province of Brindisi, and consists of an ancient 17th-century Masseria (farmhouse) and a contemporary-style winery in a singe location, surrounded by lush green vineyards and olive groves.

The must ferments in stainless steel at a controlled temperature for about 1 week. This is followed by a 7 days of maceration on the skins, which guarantees complete extraction of the colour, aroma and the polyphenolic substances contained within. The wine ages for about 3 months in steel and for a further period in the bottle.

Zonin among the "World's Top 50 Most Admired Wine Brands 2020" in Drinks International Magazine.

Masseria Altemura is owned by one of the most prominent vine- growers and wine producers in Italy, the Zonin family.

Since 1821, seven generations have dedicated their craftmanship to deliver continued excellence in wine production. Masseria Altemura lies in the heart of the Salento Peninsula, almost equidistant from Puglia’s two seas: the Ionian (20 km) and the Adriatic (16 km), in the famous wine area of Primitivo di Manduria. A unique location where the breezes of two seas meet and contribute to the creation of an extraordinary microclimate. Today the estate extends for 270 ha and encompasses the ancient masseria, the winery, the vineyards and the olive trees in one single unit.

Food Pairing: A perfect match with flavoursome first courses, roast or grilled red meats and mild cheeses.
