Data sheet

Primitivo is arguably the best known native Apulian grape. This ancient grape, that produces full-bodied, fruity and well-structured wines, has fully adapted to the Mediterranean climate. Long, hot sunny days contrasted with a hight diurnal range and the cooling effect of sea breeze, allow grapes to ripen slowly, thus preserving their freshness and aromaticity.

GRAPE VARIETY: Primitivo

APPELLATION: Salento IGP

PRODUCTION AREA: provinces of Brindisi and Lecce in Salento, southern Puglia

TRAINING SYSTEM: 45 year-old bush vines, spur pruned

SOIL: clayey

DENSITY OF PLANT AND YIELD: 4000 – 4500 plants per hectare, with yields of about 1.2 kg of grapes per plant

HARVEST: Manual harvest is carried out in the early hours of dawn; bunches are collected in 5 kg baskets to preserve their integrity, are left to wither for about 3 weeks, when they are exposed to a constant and mild ventilation. This process concentrates aromas and structural components of the grapes, greatly increasing body and flavours in the wine.

VINIFICATION: Grapes are then destemmed and fermented in steel vessels at a controlled temperature of 25 °C for 8-10 days. The maceration on the skins lasts 15-18 days, necessary to improve the extraction of aromas and tannins.

AGEING: 12 months in American and French oak barrels and 6 months in bottle.

ALCOHOL: 14.5%

CALORIES: 101.5 kcal / 100 ml

Punteggio

Cantine Paololeo

If it is true that behind every bottle of wine there is always a story to tell, that of Paololeo wines is a simple and beautiful story, just as all the family stories are.

There have been five generations of winemakers who, united by a passion for wine and never leaving their land, have built a piece of history of the winery which, today as then, in located in the town of San Donaci, south of Brindisi.

The main focus of the Paololeo winery is the family and the territory in all its traditional expressions; the winery is flanked by the farm which today owns more than 70 hectares and an ancient farmhouse surrounded by vineyards; Primitivo, Negroamaro, white and black Malvasia of Lecce: these are the main autochthonous vines grown, followed by Chardonnay and Fiano.

Today it is a modern company of 35,000 square meters, equipped with a fully automated bottling line, a capacity of 120,000 hectoliters of wine and 1,000 French and American barriques for aging the wines.

The annual production is currently around 5 million bottles, of which 60% is destined for sale abroad in countries such as Denmark, Sweden, Norway, England, Germany, Switzerland, USA, Brazil and others.

Remaining faithful to tradition has always been Paolo Leo's goal, animated by the same hereditary passion that has accompanied the Leo family business for more than a hundred years.
