    Exploring the nuances of Primitivo and Negroamaro

    In the captivating region of Puglia, in the heart of southern Italy, the red grape varieties Primitivo and Negroamaro emerge as authentic expressions of the local terroir, capturing the essence of sun and soil. While both are celebrated for producing robust and full-bodied wines, the nuances between Primitivo and Negroamaro offer a unique taste experience.

    Primitivo is known for its richness in fruitiness, with prevalent notes of black cherry, blackberry, and spices. Native to the region, Primitivo is often associated with powerful and alcoholic wines, featuring tannic structure that imparts a warmth in the mouth. However, in our Primitivo, we aimed to balance this intensity, striving to make it less alcoholic and softer, while preserving its enveloping fruitiness. Many appreciate Primitivo for its complexity and its ability to age gracefully.

    On the other hand, Negroamaro is often described as a more complex and earthy wine. Its notes range from black fruits to hints of tobacco, licorice, and aromatic herbs. Negroamaro is often linked to softer wines with smoother tannins compared to Primitivo. This wine is versatile and can be enjoyed when young or after a period of aging.

    Both of these grape varieties reflect the rich winemaking tradition of Puglia and offer a unique taste experience. The choice between Primitivo and Negroamaro depends on the personal preferences of those who appreciate wine, with Primitivo providing an enveloping fruitiness and Negroamaro standing out for its complexity and elegance.
