2018 LUCCARELLI PRIMITIVOLuccarelli
Producer: Terre di Sava
Grape: Primitivo 100%
Region: Puglia, Italy
The Terre di Sava project started in 2008 from a challenge that was simple and complex at the same time; that of expressing a combination of factors concerning the climate, the different soil types, the grapes and the human influence, a set of elements that contributed to making Sava a unique territory in the world atlas of vine-growing. In the Salentine countryside, around Sava, you can find the widest and richest heritage of Primitivo bush vines in the world. Some of these vines are over 100 hundred years old. All of Terre di Sava wines reflect the vitality of the area and the apogee of these is the ravishing Pazzia, produced in small quantities from old bush vines.
Tasting note: Intense notes of prunes and cherry combined with rosemary and vanilla. A full-flavoured wine, soft and balanced, and eminently drinkable.
Growing System: Cordon & bush vines
Soil Composition: iron-rich Terrarossa soils with calcareous bedrock
Production: The grapes were destemmed and fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 21-24C. The wine was left to rest in tank until bottled
