2019 Primitivo ''Etichetta Rossa'' (Plantamura)

Agricola di Plantamura, Primitivo, Gioia de Colle, Puglia, Italy 2019

{biodynamic} 100% Primitivo


The earliest records naming Primitivo in Puglia arise precisely from Gioia del Colle, where the 18th century priest Filippo Francesco Indellicati marveled at how this hardy varietal flourished on the plateaus of Le Murge, ripening early to combat hot days and plummeting temperatures at night.  Mariangela Plantamura’s vines were planted by her grandfather from descendants of Don Indellicati’s first cultivars, and her family practices organic and biodynamic farming methods to create wines that are aromatic and deceptively structured, with bright fruit that settles into the warm earthiness of dried leaves. Veramente squisito.  

Serving Suggestions:  Cavetelli with arugula and ricotta marzotica.  Chicory flower and asparagus frittata with a side of fried fava beans and potatoes.
