Variety: Red Wine
[Luca Maroni 99 Points]
The grapes used for Masso Antico Primitivo are grown using the vine training method known as "Alberello", which has ancient originas and is typical of the Mediterranean area of Italy. It was developed to compensate for the lack of water and the very hot climate. The now very Alberello system represents a very important part of the cultural and oenological heritage of Puglia. The rigorous hand-picking is followed by a meticulous selection of the destemmed grapes. The grape withering on plants, favoured 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 tannis that release vanilla notes in the finish.
Description: Masso Antico Primitivo, with its ruby red color and its complex bouquest, is characterized by intense and fine aromas, that go from mature fruit to spicy notes.
Food pairing: It pairs perfectly with grilled meat dishes, stew and aged cheeses.
