The Primitivo IGP of the Petrelli Winery is produced exclusively from Primitivo grapes harvested by hand at the beginning of September at the owned vines grown on the land located on the estate adjacent to the farm. The lands exposed on the north / south slope are of medium clayey argillaceous nature and are located in the area near Carmiano in the province of Lecce called “della Chiusa”.
The grapes are then processed by soft pressing and alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature in stainless steel vats. After the fermentation processes the wine rests for 4 months in barriques and 4 months in steel and finally finishes its aging directly in the bottle.
The Primitivo Petrelli wine is a wonderful primitive that enhances the characteristics of the vine grown in the high Salento rather than in the area of Manduria. It maintains the typical aromas of a Primitivo-based wine but retains a great acid note and a lot of freshness, and practically does not at all notice the sweetish persistence typical of Manduria wines. A 14 degree wine, warm, balanced, tannic, elegant but maintaining a strong distinctive character. Another wine produced by the Petrelli winery that surely knows how to be one of the best products in circulation in Italy for its price. A wine to be discovered and tasted with cured meats and medium-aged cheeses, but above all knows how to accompany savory dishes based on grilled meat.
