Primitivo Salento IGP
All the grape varieties have their own story as well as the primitivo that has its own: from Gioia del Colle, in fact, it arrives in Manduria and then in some areas in the north Salento, such as Guagnano.
Since the soils are different, all the wines produced with primitivo are different one from another: DieciAnni Primitivo is a unique, elegant and opulent wine and the vines it is obtained from are between two seas and cuddle from both the winds coming from the north and the south. It has a dense red colour with intense violaceus shades. Wide and persistent in the nose with an intense and intriguing perfume. Hints of liquorice in the mouth, made precious by some soft tannins.
