Crushed and Cured
Produttori Di Manduria, Lirica, DOC, Puglia
Medium ruby red colour with a pure nose of ripe dark fruits, cherry, plum and sweet spices like ginger and aniseed supported with discreet oak. The palate is round and textured with a well balanced freshness, ending with a long and broad spicy finish.
Produttori di Manduria had been making wines for 40 years in Puglia before the area was officially recognised as a DOC in the 1970's, unashamedly proud of their deep affection for Primitivo. The Primitivo vines average 15 to 25 years old. Harvested in early September the average yield is approximately 90 quintals per hectare.
Winemaking is carried out at a temperature of 25° C, macerating for a week, before ageing for a minimum of 6 months in big Slavonian oak casks.
