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.
The vineyard has a southern exposure and limestone and clay soils. 5,500 vines are planted per hectare in the guyot system.
Temperature-controlled fermentation for 12-15 days in stainless steel vats, with frequent pumping of the must over the skins. Maturation for 6 months in oak casks
Bright ruby red, this Rosso is intensely fruity, with notes of cherry, blackberry and plum, with a slightly spicy finish. On the palate it is enveloping and full flavored, with a savory finish and a pleasant lightness.
The ideal match to steak, red meat, roasts and rich casseroles.
Serve at 16-18°C.
Primitivo - 70%
Cabernet Sauvignon - 30%
