Carlomagno Primitivo Appassimento, Puglia, Italy, 2022   

Grapes: 100% Primitivo from low yielding vineyards in Puglia with a quarter aged in oak for 12 months.  

This is a full-bodied, rich and powerful wine. It has an intense ruby red colour . The nose is complex with aromas of over-ripe cherries, raspberries, redcurrants, plum spices and chocolate. On the palate, there are flavours of dried fruit, slight raisin character, plums, damsons, garrigue and a hint of spice. The finish is rich and full with good, sweet fruit flavours in an excellent balance. 

Critic Tasting Note:

"Deep red colour with purple hues. Dazzling aromas of vanilla oak, with hints of blackberry, blueberry and underlying roasted notes. The same applies to the palate, where joyful typicity and balance are appreciated. A fine ensemble to be expected."

89/100 points, Gilbert & Gaillard, January 2023

Food Pairing:

Great with red meats and cheese. 

Winemaking - The Appassimento Process:

In mid-August when the grapes reach perfect maturity, the grapes are slightly dried. The grapes are left to dry for about 12 days and thus ensuring a natural drying way. They lose about 25-30% of their weight. Such a way allows the concentration of flavours and natural sweetness of the grapes. After destemming, the grapes are gently pressed, allowing the skin to remain intact and optimizing color extraction. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperature of 22-25°C for 8-10 days. Frequent remontage and delestage are carried out in the early stages of fermentation in order to achieve soft extraction of aromas and gentle tannins.
