Vivid ruby-red colour with purple shadings
An intense and distinct aroma of jam-like ripe, red and black fruit.
A very warm, silky, and almost dense flavour, rich in varietal and territorial sensations.
Thanks to the solar energy captured by the foliage and the intensity of the light reflected by the limy, mineral soil, the specially selected, hand-picked bunches of this Primitivo give rise to a modern interpretation of the principal grape of Puglian winemaking. The balsamic and spicy notes of this red create an attractive harmony with the nuances of blackberries, bilberries, violets and chocolate. Extreme freshness, rich, freshy fruit and rounded, gentle tannins make this a cru with great purity of flavour and one that encapsulates the inebriating spirit of a peninsula that yields emotions galore. This austerely elegant and impenetrably opaque red bears the name of the Masseria Altemura estate and represents the finest expression of a Primitivo from Torre Santa Susanna, one of the three communes in the Province of Brindisi belonging to the Manduria D.O.C..
|The great softness and richness of its structure make it perfect for particularly tasty and succulent dishes as well as for very spicy or piquant courses, typical of the southern cuisine.
|Casa Vinicola Zonin is one of Italy’s most important privately-owned wine-producing companies and is also one of the foremost worldwide. It distributes and markets the still and sparkling wines under the Zonin label as well as those of the family’s nine Estates.
Inspired by the principle “each region has its own traditions, each region has its own wines” Gianni Zonin has, since the end of the 1960s, been selecting outstanding terroirs, bringing Casa Vinicola Zonin to its present area under vine of around 2.000 hectares, supervised by a team of 32 oenologists and agronomists. These make up 9 Estates situated in Italy’s 7 finest Regions for wine production, as well as a property in the United States, Barboursville Vineyards in Virginia.
Different production areas, each with its own specific terroir and its own peculiarities in terms of climate and morphology, the experience and professionalism of our agronomists and oenologists and the choice of dynamic business strategies: these are the most important values on which our company’s philosophy is based.
