Fatalone Primitivo Gioia del Colle
DOC Gioia di Colle
There are around 25,000 bottles of this wine produced each year from organically farmed vines grown on the hills of Murgia. This are trained in a modernised version of ‘Alberello Pugliese’, a kind of bush vine with lateral wires which makes for lowish density planting of 3500 to 4000 vines per hectare.
The wine is 100% Primitivo, hand picked in the second half of September. Fermentation is ‘spontaneous’, in other words, no yeasts are introduced and it is in steel tanks which have temperature control ‘jackets’. Ageing is in steel for six months, 750ltr Slovenian Botti for six months and finally six months in bottle before release. 15%
