Description

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 PGI

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

TASTING NOTES: Intense ruby red color, with garnet tinges; pronounced spicy bouquet, with hints of black berry, raisins and liquorice. Smooth, velvety tannins, full body and round, balanced with a good level of acidity; lingering flavours of vanilla and chocolate. Long aftertaste of dried figs and black cherry.

SERVICE: decant and serve at 17-18 °C

FOOD PAIRING: main courses based on red sauces and meat, roasts and game; mature cheese, grilled mushrooms.

Cantine Paololeo

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

Today Paololeo winery is a modern company: it covers an area of 17,000 square meters and is equipped with a very modern winemaking system, a large barrel room and a cutting-edge bottling line capable of bottling  7000 bottles per hour.

However, the "heart" of all the current area under vines are still those 25 hectares where, at the beginning of the twentieth century, the great-grandfather began to vinify his grapes in Masseria Monticello. Then his nephew Paolo Leo inherited the land and built the winery.

Today it is still an heir, the namesake Paolo Leo, son of Nicola, to lead the new winery, together with his wife Roberta and his eldest sons Nicola and Stefano, who are paving the way for the younger brothers Francesco and Alessandro.
