Made from a strict selection of grapes – exclusively of the Primitivo variety – grown on a terrain of reddish ochre earth mixed with slabs of limestone that have been crushed (according to the unique technique known as spietramento), and following 12 months’ maturation in 350 liter (92 gallon) tonneaux of French oak as well as appropriate bottle-ageing, this cru maintains the rigour of its indigenous cultivar whilst opening itself up to international taste. Indeed, the name Sasseo (“stony”) chosen for this Primitivo is intended to recall the uniqueness, sunniness and strength of the terroir that one finds in the glass. An intense ruby red, it offers scents of sour cherries, violets, liquorice and sweet spicy hints. It is velvety, warm and persistent: a wine to sip slowly together with a substantial dish or whilst just reading a book.

Area: Agro di Torre di Santa Susanna, Salento.
Grapes: 100% Primitivo
Alcohol level: 14,5% by volume
Vinification and ageing: The grapes, harvested in a state of advanced ripeness, are delicately pressed and destalked. The must then undergoes a process of fermentation of 14 days at a temperature of 25-28°C. (77-82°F.). When vinification is completed, the wine ages for 12 months in 350 liter (92 gallon) tonneaux of French oak, followed by a further period of fining in the bottle.
Colour: Dark and profound ruby red
Bouquet: This wine offers the nose full and intense aromas with hints of plums, jams of red fruits and sweet accents of spices.
Flavour: A wine of a good body, it has a mouth-filling flavour that is warm and soft and expresses a highly mature fruitiness, supported by a pleasant complex of sweet tannins.
Serving temperature: It should be served at about 18°C. (64°F.).
Food matches: Its structure makes this an ideal wine as an accompaniment for typical dishes of Apulian cuisine like capriata di fave e cicoria (fava bean and chicory soup), red meats roasted over the coals and roast lamb.
Organoleptic characteristics: ruby impenetrable. Mineral sensations, to recall the name of the wine, herald an organoleptic kit focuses on limestone sensations, followed by those of black cherry in alcohol, wilted geranium. Complete the profile a balsamic vein and licorice. Sip full, balanced between soft feel glycerine and verve of freshness.
