Primitivo di Apollonio is a simple and easy wine to appreciate. A version composed of elegance and structure managing to reflect its company philosophy and the territory at the same time. The grapes are soft pressed to preserve the floral and fruity taste, typical of this vine.

It’s fresh taste, combined with its fruity and floral notes complements the overall experience. Medium-light body with ripe tannins, round, balanced and intense with warm mineral tones.

This Primitivo expresses a lovely dark hue with a dark fruit profile, but not too ripe. The palate is intense and smooth. The perfect balance between body and acidity.
