Punta Aquila

Primitivo is a black native grape variety from Apulia. The name originates from the precociousness of its vegetative phases, with the harvest period running from the end of August to the first ten days of September. Its grapes are grown in the Uggio-Punta Aquila estate. A short passage in 40 hl wood vats contributes to a major aromatic complexity, though maintaining an extraordinary drinkability and pleasantness.
