HARVEST
Harvest of Primitivo takes usually place in August, at latest at the beginning of September, whereas harvest of Negroamaro in the second or third decade of September.

After a brief maceration on the skins, which gives the typical pink color and nice fragrant aromas, but avoid an excessive extraction of tannins, the must continues through pressing and fermentation at controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks.

COLOUR
Typical salmon-pink, light but brilliant.
