Why the winemaker recommends Tenute Chiaromonte Puglia Primitivo IGT Nigredo 2018
Primitivo IGT Puglia Nigredo, production of grapes from sapling - trained vineyards, irradiated by the sun's rays for long sunny days. The sirocco wind mitigates the grapes by enriching the must with sugar which is transmuted into alcoholic strength and heat. Very red wine capable of telling its story and making the flavors and aromas imposed by nature reflect in the glass.
Characteristics of the Primitivo Tenute Chiaromonte wine
Primitivo wine of Gioia del Colle, typically deep ruby red color and a massive amount of glycerin. The smell of ripe fruit aromas and in the mouth a large and warm explosion of its alcohol content, 15.50% Vol, elegance and softness caress the palate. It closes gracefully in the final proving to be very long and persistent.
