PRIMITIVO – Masseria Borgo Dei Trulli Lucale Appasimento
Italy, Puglia 2015
A beautiful wine from a beautiful country and one of our all time favourites… summer, winter, autumn, spring. Black cherries, prunes, spice and white pepper.
In the ‘heel of Italy’s boot’, in the Salento region of Puglia, lies Masseria Borgo dei Trulli, an Orion Wines estate. Home to dark, thick-skinned black grape varieties, the focus here is primarily on indigenous varieties and interesting production methods, an air drying process that concentrates the flavours of this intensely fruity variety.
