Macrame Primitivo IGP Puglia I Pastini, 2020

Italy

Producer

I Pastini

Grape Variety

Primitivo

Itria Valley is famous for its Trulli, old drystone houses which look like something out of a Brothers Grimm fairytale are a feature of the landscape surrounded by vines and olive trees. When the Carparellis took over the I Pàstini property in 2000, 12 hectares of vines, an adjoining cottage from 1759 and the traditional Trulli were in a state of neglect. The first objective was the recovery of ancient vines through an extensive research program to identify old scions and field graft collected buds. Today, the estate has 15 hectares of vineyards planted to ancient local grape varieties such as Minutolo, Verdeca and Bianca d’Alessano. The climate in Itria Valley consists of harsh winters with long warm summers and is always very breezy with cool night temperatures. The region is more suitable for growing white varieties than other parts of Puglia. 2020 Macramè has intense aromas of crushed ripe berries and cooked jammy fruits with a balsamic character evolving in the glass with air. More sweet, succulent fruits emerge on the palate, and a slightly astringest finish is complemented by chocolate flavours. Made from 100% Primitivo, Macramè Primitivo at 13.5% has 7g/l of residual sweetness.
