INFO: It is with the poetically titled Elegia that the extraordinary levels of quality in these vineyards come to light. Made from old bush vines up to 50 years old it creates a wine of intense dark berry fruit with wonderful balsamic end notes and excellent balance. This Riserva level Primitivo is produced from grapes harvested from 35 to 50 year old alberello (bush vine) and espallier trained vines. Harvested in mid September, the average yield per hectare is 60 quintals. A temperature controlled fermentation is made at 25° C with maceration for 2 weeks before 12 months of ageing in French Allier oak barriques, a proportion of which are new oak.
A bright ruby red colour with garnet nuances, this is an intense and complex Primitivo wine. Aromas of ripe raspberry and blackberry as well as plum jam combined with clean, spicy, vanilla and balsamic notes. Dry, warm, soft, tannic and persistent in the mouth, all rounded out by the toasted oak notes.
