Apollonio 'Elfo' Primitivo 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: "The nose is frank and elegant, full of black cherry, black pepper and dried flowers. Light body, fairly balanced with a strong touch of tannin in the finish. Fresh with pleasant roundness. Harmonious and intense with warm mineral tones." - Importer Winery: "The Apollonio family has been involved in winemaking for four generations. Their estate is located in Lecce, the capital of Salento, which is mid-way between the Ionic and Adriatic coasts in the region of Puglia (the “heel of the boot” of Italy). In 1975, Salvatore Apollonio re-organized and expanded the family business. He upgraded the winery and started bottling his own wines with his own Apollonio label on his estate. Salvatore’s sons, Marcello and Massimiliano, have since inherited the estate and continue with ambitious plans to upgrade and expand. Massimiliano, the estate’s winemaker, works with a variety of indigenous grapes originally brought to the area by the Greeks and Phoenicians. Marcello is in charge of marketing and export. The Apollonio brand is now distributed worldwide." - Importer
