Primitivo Puglia IGT

An excellent Primitivo is the result of the Mediterranean climate by the Adriatic Seas, bare limestone cliff soil and refreshing sirocco winds. Its relatively moderate acidity makes it very pleasant and gratifying on the palate. A dark ruby-red colour, seductive aromas of ripe forest fruits, the fine spiciness of cloves, cinnamon and white pepper, and an irresistible chocolate note are what make Primitivo so unique.

PRIMITIVO PUGLIA IGT has subtle herbal spiciness and mild sweetness coated in juicy fruit flavours. Its typical southern- Italian character can be seen in the rustic tannins and a jamlike fruitiness. The nose adds notes of plums and cherries, as well as a little herbal spice. Crimson colouring with violet reflections gives it a wonderful appearance, too.

PRIMITIVO PUGLIA IGT goes particularly well with flavoursome Mediterranean dishes, as well as strong cheese. It is also the right choice with any tomatobased dish, e.g. Italian classics such as spaghetti bolognese or pizza. Furthermore, it combines excellently with capers and earthy vegetables like mushrooms, onions and aubergines.


REGION

The name Primitivo comes from the fact that it ripens very early and is thus one of the first grapes to be picked. The bestknown and most renowned cultivation region for the Primitivo is in Apulia, in south-east Italy. There it grows on sun-drenched wine slopes and has been enjoying increasing popularity in Germany in recent years.
