2020 Masso Antico Primitivo Salento Italy

From: $22.00

2020 Masso Antico Primitivo Salento Italy – Masso Antico is an eclectic range of wines from Southern Italy. Produced in the provinces of Puglia and Abruzzo by winemakers Daniele and Carlo. Masso Antico wines are modern interpretations of classic local grape varieties.

The grapes used for Masso Antico Primitivo are grown using the vine training method known as “Alberello”, which has ancient origins and is typical of the Mediterranean area of Italy. It was developed to compensate the lack of water and the very hot climate. The now very rare Alberello system represents a very important part of the cultural and heritage of Apulia. The rigorous hand-picking is followed by a meticulous selection of the destemmed grapes. The grape withering on plants, favored by the sea wind, and a slow maturation in French oak barrels for about 6 months results in an outstanding full-bodied wine with soft tannins that release vanilla notes in the finish.

Masso Antico Primitivo, with its ruby red color and its complex bouquet, is characterized by intense and fine aromas, that go from mature fruit to spicy notes.

It pairs perfectly with grilled meat dishes, stew and aged cheeses.
