Description

Terre di Montelusa is made by Calatrasi, a wine company with quite substantial vineyard holdings in Sicily and Puglia. This smooth, juicy Primitivo is full of Southern Puglian character. The vineyards are based in IGT Salento where the grapes can achieve early and full ripeness without becoming excessively alcoholic. Primitivo is principally found in Puglia (the ‘heel’ of Italy) as well as in Sicily. It was a somewhat obscure grape until it was recognised as being identical to California’s Zinfandel variety. DNA profiling showed that both grapes originated from an ancient Croatian vine.

TASTING NOTES

Medium-bodied with ripe dark fruit flavours and a touch of spice and soft velvety texture.
