PRIMITIVO red wine produced by the Santi Dimitri Winery. It is produced using grapes from the land between the agro di Cutrofiano and that of Galatina.
The vineyards cultivated here on clay-sandy soils with the spurred cordon training technique. The density of the plants is around 4000 / ha and the yield is around 8500 kg/ha. Harvesting takes place in the first hours of dawn in the first week of September. The vinification takes place with an 8-days maceration on the skins followed by the fermentation phase carried out at about 24/25 ° C. The wine ages for a few months in steel and bottle before being placed on the market. Due to the typical characteristics of the Primitive of Salento, this wine lends itself to ageing for several years with a capacity of evolution that reaches even 10 years.
PRIMITIVO by Santi Dimitri Winery presents all the characteristics of the typical Salento Primitivo with an impenetrable garnet red colour. The scent is intense and floral. Very pronounced structure and body. In the mouth an explosion of strength and opulence, with great fruit. Long and persistent finish that gives great satisfaction to the palate.
