The Primitivo IGP of Tenute Eméra is produced from 100% Primitivo grapes obtained from vineyards: spurred cordon cultivated inside the Tenute Eméra farm, between the Lizzano and Pulsano marinas. The vines are grown on medium-textured soil, with the presence of silica, clay and sand and abundant skeleton (stones, pebbles and gravel). The yield per hectare is equal to 90 q.
The harvest starts in the first decade of September with mechanically harvested grapes, followed by vinification with grapes that are macerated and fermented in cement tanks for about 15 days. The extraction of the color and the polyphenolic and aromatic components is favored by daily replacements of the liquid fraction on the marc. At the end of the vinification process a 12-month refinement period follows, with a slight passage in second / third generation barriques.
The Primitivo di Tenute Emèra is a wine with an intense red color. Aroma of ripe red fruit, spicy. Full and balanced taste with a slightly persistent and soft finish.
