2020 Primitivo Puglia I.G.P

$29.50

 This delicious full bodied red wine from Tenuta Viglione is a clear ruby colour with a violet rim, produced in the southern Italian wine region of the ‘Murgia’, Puglia. This southern Italian red is produced through certified organic farming methods and hand-picked harvests, the quality of this wine and intensity of flavour really shines.

An excellent example of this region’s signature grapes, the wine has multiple flavour levels; both strong in red and black fruit flavours, whilst persisting with notes of earth and animal leather. Tannins are subtle yet persistent.

Whether you enjoy this Primitivo with spicy cured meats, or you enjoy it with some well-made pizzas, this drop from Tenuta Viglione is a fantastic example of the rich wine making traditions of South Italy.

Description

The Finer Details

What does our Somm say?

Yum! This Primitivo really packs a punch with flavour here. I was delighted to find more than just the usually wild strawberry and prune notes coming through, but some more complex dustier notes of leather, earth and mushroom. Divine!

 

These rich flavours and aromas are strengthened by the fine minerality of the vineyard’s soil and through the careful organic farming of the Zullo family of Tenuta Viglione.

 

Like most Southern Italian red wines, this drop shines most with Southern Italian cuisine. High acidity and intense notes of this wine mean that the perfect pairing to this drop would be roasted meats that have been marinaded in a spicy rub or an organic, herby- charcoal chicken.

 

Spicy salamis, cured meats and even rich dips such as a smoked capsicum and chilli spread would do wonders with this wine. I also personally love this with a home cooked spaghetti with fresh chilli on top.

 

As you can see, this wine lends itself to the weekend BBQ warriors, AND your Aperitivo hour.

The Winery

Tenuta Viglione Farm was founded with viticulture of the Zullo Family and their passion for pugliese wines. The Winery was born from the desire to nurture the enormous wine-growing potential of the area between the municipalities of Gioia del Colle (Ba) and Santeramo in Colle (Ba) of Puglia. Tenuta Viglione has been producing quality wines in these territories for decades.

 

At 480m above sea level, the limestone soil is covered in pebbles and features remnants of sea shells due to their vicinity to the coast. This, along with the hospitable climate of Puglia, allows the grape growth to flourish, and the end wine products of this winery to stand out with their flavours, complexity, minerality and aroma.

 

The Zullo family produces characteristic wines of the area, whilst using techniques and the most productive & advanced methodologies – from the context of caring for land and grape, to the processing of the wine, the transformative phase, and its arrival to the bottle.

 

After many years, driven by his passion for the art of good wine, love for his own land and an attachment to the family and its winemaking origins, Giovanni Zullo (third generation of the Zullo family) was honoured to step up and continue to deepen the quality of all aspects of Tenuta Viglione wines. Most recently, Giovanni has worked tirelessly to a process of restructuring and modernization of the ancient Masseria “viglione” which today represents the new characteristic setting of the family Farm. Recently the winery has become a certified Organic Wine producer.
