Description

A distinctive element inside a culture is the language. Griko is an old greek dialect that still lives in southern Salento, because its people resist to forget their ancient roots and traditions. With the same respect for our culture, we created this Primitivo passito wine, that clearly reflects our deep, intense and long living Puglian nature.

GRAPE VARIETY: Primitivo

TYPE OF WINE: Red dessert wine

PRODUCTION AREA: Francavilla Fontana area, in Southern Puglia

TRAINING SYSTEM: traditional puglian bush vines

SOIL: clayey

PLANT DENSITY AND YIELD: 4500 plants per hectare and 1 kg of grapes per plant

HARVEST: manual harvest takes place between the end of August and the beginning of September, when the tannins of the skin are ripe enough. The bunches are collected in small 5 kg baskets, to preserve their integrity, and are taken to a room called “fruttaio” where the withering process takes place, that is the dehydration of the grapes at controlled temperature and humidity.

VINIFICATION: after about a month of withering, the grapes are destemmed and crushed; follows a slow fermentation  which lasts about 30 days, at a controlled temperature of 22-24 °C. During the fermentation, frequent punch-down and delestage processes are performed to improve the extraction of color, aromas and tannins. The fermentation is interrupted before the complete consumption of the sugars. Wine then rests for 10-15 days and finally it’s soft pressed.

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.
