Masseria Altemura Primitivo Salento Sasseo 2011

Masseria Altemura Primitivo Salento Sasseo 750ML 2011    
Sku: 51435

Made from a strict selection of grapes – exclusively of the Primitivo variety – grown on a terrain of reddish ochre earth mixed with slabs of limestone that have been crushed (according to the unique technique known as spietramento), and following 12 months’ maturation in 65-hectolitre casks of precious Slavonian oak as well as appropriate bottle-ageing, this cru maintains the rigour of its indigenous cultivar whilst opening itself up to international taste. Indeed, the name Sasseo (“stony”) chosen for this Primitivo is intended to recall the uniqueness, sunniness and strength of the terroir that one finds in the glass. An intense ruby red, it offers scents of sour cherries, violets, liquorice and sweet spicy hints. It is velvety, warm and persistent: a wine to sip slowly together with a substantial dish or whilst just reading a book.

Tasting notes
Colour Dark and profound ruby red Bouquet This wine offers the nose full and intense aromas with hints of plums, jams of red fruits and sweet accents of spices. Flavour A wine of a good body, it has a mouth-filling flavour that is warm and soft and expresses a highly mature fruitiness, supported by a pleasant complex of sweet tannins.

Food pairing
Its structure makes this an ideal wine as an accompaniment for typical dishes of Apulian cuisine like ”Capriata di fave e cicoria” (fava bean and chicory soup), red meats roasted over the coals and roast lamb.
