The Region: Salento is the heel of Italy, a sun-kissed peninsula at the southern tip of the Puglia winegrowing region. It boasts a picturesque coastline, deep-blue seas and a rural landscape full of olive groves and vineyards spotted with ancient villages. Grown here for centuries, Primitivo is a flagship grape and a source of pride. The hot dry climate is tempered by cool breezes from the surrounding seas making for excellent growing conditions.
The Wine: A lush Primitivo loaded with flavours of dark berries, cherries and plum, with accents of warm baking spice and dried fruit character. Juicy ripe fruit is perfectly balanced with racy acidity and fine-grained tannins for a smooth rounded finish.
Food Pairing: Pair with dishes typical to the region such as Eggplant Parmesan or a rustic style pizza with sausage and onions. A perfect combination for barbeque, bold cheeses and grilled vegetables.
