Heracles Primitivo Puglia IGT 2014

Producer Information

Tommasi’s passion for wine, and the desire to discover and select the very best of Italian winemaking, has taken us to Puglia. Around 80 hectares of land have been purchased in Manduria, in the Salento area, one of the finest zones for the cultivation of the Primitivo grape, where viticulture has extremely ancient origins, dating  back to the time of Magna Graecia.

The property, which lies about 6 km from the Ionian coast, also includes a manor house called “Masseria” dating back to the early 1900s, a typical complex of agricultural buildings which originally acted as an organisational centre for all of the farming operations. Following refurbishment, the Masseria now houses a winery of 700 sqm complete with vinification and maturation facilities.

Vineyards

The vineyard has a southern exposure with limestone and clay soils.

5,500 vines planted per hectare in the guyot system.

Winemaking

Twelve days fermentation in stainless steel tanks followed by ten months ageing in oak barrels.

Tasting Note

Intense ruby red in colour with aromas of cherry, strawberry and liquorice. Full and rich on the palate with lively tannins and an excellent texture.

Food Pairing

Perfect with savoury dishes such as red meat, pork and aged cheeses. Equally delicious with Spaghetti Bolognese or spicy soups.
