In Punta Aquila the vines, all trained as spurred cordon, are established at a density of 6000 plants per hectare. The soil consists mostly in weakly aggregate yellowish sands over deeper layers of blue-grey clay deposits rich in fine gravel and an arenaceous-calcarenite base. All elements that concur in creating a Primitivo of balanced acidity, optimal sugar content and a great ageing potential.
