Primo Estate owns and operates a state of the art winery located on the Virginia Vineyard property. It is a custom designed facility that contains an intriguing mixture of new and old world technologies. There are numerous special features like a 50 metre drying rack area, visible from the driveway entry and used for making the JOSEPH 'La Magia' botrytis wine. At the core of the winery, suspended above head height, are five ten tonne open concrete red fermenters. These are more labour intensive but there is no doubt that the subtle aeration and warmer temperatures that they give during the fermentation phase results in wine with more soul. Another rare sight are the three large oak casks which perpetually contain wine for the JOSEPH Sparkling Red. Shiraz going back to the mid 1980s is in this mother of all base wines. Read less

The 125-acre Ognissole estate, near the town of Fragagnano in Apulia’s Manduria region, was established in 2000 by the founders of Feudi di San Gregorio. Over the past 20 years or more, Feudi di San Gregorio, in southern Italy’s Campania region, has played a leading role in fostering a winemaking revolution that extends across southern Italy, and has led to a remarkable resurgence of regional wine industries. The Ognissole range taps into the enormous potential of local, ancient varieties in an effort to bring prestige and recognition to these treasures of the south. Ognissole seeks to revitalize this ancient area, bringing Apulia to the forefront among world-class wine regions. Production Area Apulia (Puglia), Italy. The grapes are grown in our estate in the area of Fragagnano, close to Manduria, where the soil is chalky mixed with medium consistency tufaceous layers. Grape Varieties 100% Primitivo. Vinification The grapes are vinified in thermo-conditioned stainless steel tanks. The maceration, carried out at a temperature not higher than 26 °C, lasts 8-10 days. The malolactic fermentation is completed by the beginning of winter. Afterwards, there is a further fining period in steel tanks (about 3 months) and in bottle (about 2 months). Color Deep ruby red with violet reflections. Bouquet The nose reveals a rich perfume of fruity hints as plum and sour black cherries and also spices as ginger and vanilla. Taste In the mouth it is warm, full and velvety. Alcohol 13.5% Serving Suggestions Pasta with rich meat sauces, excellent with red meat and in particular lamb. An ideal pairing for moderately aged as well as intense ripe cheeses.

/ This is a simpatico wine with perky notes of candied cherry, sweet spice, spring flowers, cocoa and vanilla. In fact, it smells a lot like chocolate cake. In the mouth it is smooth and velvety with a medium-long finish.

Die Charakterzüge dieses südländischen Europäers präsentieren sich bereits in der Nase: Intensität, Konzentration, Gehalt und Nuancenreichtum. Das Bouquet ist von reifer Fruchtaromatik, süsslich-exotischen Gewürznoten und einer Prise von Pfeffer und Röstaromen geprägt. Die grosse Stärke dieses Primitivo di Manduria liegt in der Offenbarung von saftiger Gerbstofftextur und fruchtiger Struktur, begleitet von einem Süsseeindruck, der kennzeichnend für reifes Traubengut ist. Es ist ein klassischer Italiener, der sowohl verführerisch-leckere wie typisch-fruchtige Seiten aufweist.

/ Feudi is clearly at the forefront of winemaking in Campania. (It is also a top travel destination with a gourmet restaurant and other facilities). The 2005 Ognissole Primitivo has a light garnet color and displays red and black fruit, spice and toasty oak and caramel aromas. On the palate it offers a soft fruit attack, with chocolate notes, and is nicely balanced and elegant.

Primitivo di Manduria DOC - 2013 - 89 points, Wine Enthusiast/ An elegant expression of this grape, this smooth, full-bodied wine delivers layers of spicy plum, juicy blackberry, graphite, clove and licorice. Firm but velvety tannins provide ample texture and support.

/ Feudi is clearly at the forefront of winemaking in Campania. (It is also a top travel destination with a gourmet restaurant and other facilities). The 2004 Ognissole Primitivo has a medium ruby color and a nose of spicy dark fruit, herbs, coconut and vanilla. On the palate, it offers lush and richly extracted plum and casssis fruit, big tannins and a good deal of oak on a long pleasant finish.

Great Values from Italy / Feudi di San Gregorio is a good source for readers who want to discover the considerable breadth of the beautiful wines of Campania. Feudi’s 2006 Primitivo di Manduria Ognissole is a delicious, deeply flavored wine loaded with generous, super-ripe blueberries, blackberries, cassis, and raisins. This opulent, weighty Primitivo offers excellent length as well as richness.
