Some 50% of Pellegrino's sales are for still wines and the company is considered to be one of the most innovative in the south of Italy. In order to give a greater emphasis and definition to the area of activity the wines are sold under the DUCA DI CASTELMONTE label. Terre di Sava was established in 2008 and builds upon an already incredible tradition of viticulture and wine production. Terra di Sava was recently purchased by a group of wine lovers who joined forces to rescue a treasured winery from financial difficulties. The investors knew the heritage and potential of this unique land and were able to capitalize on the best aspects of the terroir, climate and unfaltering human endeavour to produce The village of Sava is at the centre of the Primitivo di Manduria DOC, an area renowned for the production of exceptional, fruit driven reds made from the indigenous Primitivo grape, The company also produces wines from the Negroamaro, Malvasia Nera and Malvasia Bianca. Their aim is to produce high quality wines typical of the region that will be experienced and enjoyed by connoisseurs throughout the world. Vintage: 2006 Grapes: 100% Primitivo grapes, from old bush vines Vines / Ha: 5,000 plants Harvest: Last week of August by hand. Soil: Clay and limestone, reddish-brown in colour. This is the heart of the so called "terre rossa" (red soil) territory where temperatures are very high and rainfall is minimal. Winemaking The grapes were destemmed and fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 21-24C. The wine was aged for 6 months in French oak barriques followed by a minimum of 6 months in bottle prior to release. Colour: Ruby red with violet tinges. Taste: A generous bouquet reminiscent of ripe cherries, plums with notes of cocoa and vanilla. In the mouth the wine has a warm and velvety texture and finishes with a touch of sweetness typical of the Primitivo grape. Serve: At 16-18C to accompany savoury first course dishes, lamb, game with rich sauces and mature cheese. Will age beautifully over the coming 3 years
