Primitivo di Salento Doppio Passo 2020

Ripasso wine using a portion of dried Primitivo grapes and fermenting the wine a second time on the dried skins. The result is a fresh and aromatic red with an amazing concentration of plum, blackberry, cherry and chocolate flavours.

Primitivo di Salento Doppio Passo 2020

Region

The name Puglia is thought to be derived from the Latin `a-pluvia` or lack of rain, and this fertile region along the Adriatic coast is the heartland of the Primitivo grape variety (claimed as the origin of California’s Zinfandel variety). The Salento penninsula, with a hot maritime climate and cool nighttime breezes, produces concentrated red wines of relatively high alcohol and soft, rounded tannins.

Producer

The company was born as a retailer in 1928 in the Veneto region for sales of wines in casks and demi-johns to restaurants and small retailers. In the fifties, the family expanded their horizons to selling wines across Central Europe and beyond. Throughout all this expansion, the Botter family retained control, and the company is now run by the third generation and from their roots in Veneto they now have a portfolio of wines produced in some of Italy’s finest regions.

Tasting Notes

This bold and powerful red from Brindisi is made in a similar way to a Ripasso wine using a portion of dried Primitivo grapes and fermenting the wine a second time on the dried skins. The result is a fresh and aromatic red with an amazing concentration of plum, blackberry, cherry, and chocolate flavours.

Food

Serve with spicy pasta dishes, roast pork or beef, game dishes, and full-flavored hard cheeses.
