Versante Primitivo Salento 18
|Delivery time:||Same day Pickup|
Agricole Vallone is a historic Apulian winery founded in 1934 and led today by Francesco Vallone, the sole family heir. The property is a multi-agricultural project, and along with their vineyards, it includes olive groves, artichokes, and a variety of vegetables. The property consists of three large estates spread throughout San Pancrazio Salentino, Brindisi, and Carovigno. The balmy vineyard conditions are nicely tempered by the Adriatic-cooled microclimate of the Salento Peninsula, allowing the grapes to ripen evenly.
Grapes for the 2018 Versante Primitivo were sourced from Vallone's Brindisi estate -- a 15ha vineyard that overlooks the Adriatic sea. The clay and limestone soil composition lends a delicate mineral-tinged balance to the laser-etched fruit. The property is sustainably and traditionally farmed with minimal intervention and without chemical fertilizers.
In the glass, you'll find a super-smooth easy-drinking Primitivo filled with notes of wild cherry, red berries, plum, and blackberry. This medium-bodied thirst-quencher is a perfect starter for your next dinner party and pairs wonderfully with pork, chicken, and burgers -- it's also an excellent fit for pasta and salmon dishes.
