Primitivo di Manduria DOC
This is Masseria Altemura’s iconic wine. Its name recalls the quest for proportions – a defining attribute of art in Apulia – embodied by the horizontal and vertical lines, and by the volume of the walls of the Masseria in contrast to the upward projection of the Aragonese Tower. A refined interpretation of Primitivo di Manduria, Altemura is produced from the area of Salento that is best suited to the production of elegant wines, due to soil that is rich in white limestone rocks and to the estate’s proximity to two seas. Complexity and finesse are the characteristic traits of this great cru, which captures the essence of Primitivo in its most pure forms, shaped by pristine light and forged into a wine with singularly harmonious body. It has the potential to evolve well over time.
Intense ruby red with orange reflections
The wine opens with intense aromas of plums, small black fruit such as blueberries, followed by balsamic nuances, light herbaceous notes, and a touch of white pepper.
A wine that is soft and well-balanced on the palate with lively, well-integrated tannins. It has a lingering persistence, finishing with hints of cocoa.
