This Red wine is made with Primitivo, a dark-skinned grape known for producing inky, tannic wines, particularly Primitivo di Manduria and its naturally sweet Dolce Naturale variant.
Harvesting of fruits is done in the first week of September and vinification takes place at a controlled temperature. The wine is aged for 6 months in French oak barrels.
