Tasting Note:
In the heart of DOP areas – DOP stands for ‘Di Origine Protetta’
referring to a Protected Designation of Origin for quality wines
produced in a specified region – the Golden Line of Papale
originates from Primitivo grapes carefully selected and manually
picked into cases. It is ruby-red-coloured and its taste is round and
soft, reminding scents of mixed berries jam. Its good texture
identifies with the local territory and its refined elegance is a
distinctive feature.
Winemaking:
Fermentation with maceration at a controlled temperature of 26 °
-28 ° C. After malolactic fermentation, aging in oak barrels for at
least 10 months
Vineyard :
The Primitivo varity has been cultivated for centuries in the Puglia
region. It tends to have high vigour, mature relatively quickly and
produce high yields. Drought and high temperatures can be a
problem so using the alberello system of training allow for better
vine management. Vines are planted in the province of Taranto at
an altitude of 150/200 m above sea level and the harvest is done
by hand.
Food matching:
It matchs very well with red meat, game, heavy sauces, but it is
also nice withn spicey food and with hard cheese.
