San Marzano Talo Primitivo-Merlot IGP 2020

San Marzano Talo Primitivo-Merlot has a deep ruby red colour with garnet reflections. The wine reveals a complex bouquet of cherries and red currants with notes of cinnamon. The palate has a soft structure, velvety tannins and a long aftertaste. A red wine born from the perfect balance between a typical and cosmopolitan grape variety.

50% Primitivo, 50% Merlot. The fruit for this wine comes from a vineyard in San Marzano, Salento, Puglia. The vineyard sits approximately 100 metres above sea level and benefits from great diurnal temperature variations. The warmer temperatures during the day and cooler nights encourage the grapes to have a long maturation period, with the heat of the day promoting sugar accumulation, while the cooler nights preserve the acidity levels. The vines go through Espalier training and grow in soils that are clayey, thin and full of rocks.

Thermo-controlled maceration and alcoholic fermentation for about 10 days with selected yeasts, Ageing in French oak barrels for 4–6 months.
