Savese. Primitivo Le Petrose
Primitivo di Manduria DOCG
This is a wine to savour, perhaps to be a little afraid of; it is incredibly mouthfilling, a raucous concoction of deep berry fruit, laced with lavender, chocolate and savoury roasted pepper and mushroom. 14%
Primitivo is misunderstood, many wine professionals have written it off as ‘a wine of the sun’ and yes, it is hot in Puglia, but, this is a vine that soaks its terroir and here in Sava the expression is unique and wonderful. Terrarossa, as the name suggests is made on red clays, the vines are old mainly grown using the traditional bush way and some are ‘trained-bush’ a strange hybrid system that seems to work well. Ageing is in large old casks, some are lined-cement others are from a mixture of woods, and the wine is usually released 3 years after the vintage.
