Masseria Altemura Sasseo Primitivo Salento 2015

External Review by We Speak Wine:

VINIFICATION: The grapes are grown on a terrain of reddish earth mixed with slabs of limestone that have been crushed according to the unique technique known as spietramento. The grapes are machine harvested, then gently crushed and de-stemmed. The must is then fermented over a period of 14 days at temperatures of 77-82 °F. Following fermentation, the wine is aged for 12 months in 6,000 liter Slavonian botte, followed by 3 months of aging in the bottle. COLOR: Ruby red with purple hues. BOUQUET: Prominent tobacco and leather on the nose, ripe blackberry and blueberry with hints of cocoa, baking spice and delicate pine. PALATE: Juicy and medium bodied revealing rich fruits, sweet herbs and milk chocolate that lead to plush tannins and an elegant finish. FOOD PAIRINGS: Barbecued and grilled meats, an assortment of pastas with red sauce as well as blue, gouda and goat cheese. ALCOHOL LEVEL: 14.5%
