In the appellation IGT Puglia, the Primitivo grapes grow on loamy soils.
The grapes are harvested in mid-September and immediately brought to the wine cellar of Torrevento. There, the readings are first fermented in stainless steel tanks. This is followed by maceration of the mash. Both stainless steel tanks (10 months) and barrique barrels (6 months) are used for the expansion. Finally, this red wine rounds off harmoniously on the bottle before it leaves the winery.
