Crushed & Cured
Tempo al Vino, Lianto, Primitivo, 2020
Spicy, well-structured, warm and intense Primitivo with a long fruity finish and floral, fruity aroma of pomegranate and Mediterranean herbs.
Climate is Mediterranean, warm and dry. Soil is loose with a medium texture, flat aspect and exposed fully to south with proximity to the sea. Guyot training of 25 year old vines. Hand-harvested, maceration at cool temperatures in stainless steel. Natural fermentation in tank.
Tempo al Vino is an offshoot of Schola Sarmenti in Salento, Puglia, whose wines are crafted by young winemaker Sylvia Formigli. Their young vineyards are just a short distance from the sea, farmed organically and maintained under the old Apullian training system called Albarello, which has been used since ancient times. The native varieties of the region such as Negroamaro and Primitivo are promoted and made to a very high standard under organic farming principles.
