Primitivo Salento Podere don Cataldo is a red wine produced by the Rocca farm from 100% Primitivo grapes, grown in Leverano in the heart of Salento . Here the vineyards rest on predominantly clayey-calcareous soils . This red with excellent structure has an aging potential of 5 years from harvest.
In the glass, Primitivo Salento has an intense red color with violet reflections. The nose opens with a complex bouquet that varies from notes of plums and cherries to hints of dried fruit and fig jam. A red with an authentic taste that also envelops with hints of licorice , cloves and dark chocolate . Ideal to accompany tasty red meats, roasts and mushroom risotto. It is also excellent in combination with aged cheeses and to drink alone with dark chocolate.
After the harvest, which takes place between the end of August and the beginning of September, the grapes macerate for a short period at a controlled temperature. Subsequently Il Primitivo Salendo refines in large oak and stainless steel barrels.
