Mottura Primitivo di Manduria 2022

The primitivo grape is an ancient grape variety introduced by the Phoeniciansand Greeks all around the Mediterranean. The color of the wine is deep ruby red, tending toward purple. It has aromas of red fruit in jam, Morello cherries, cocoa and the shell of walnuts. On the palate, it is full-bodied, velvety and harmonious in flavor.
The grapes are grown exclusively in the province of Taranto and parts of the province of Brindish. The terroir consists of calcareous clay. Winters here are moderate and springs and summers very dry. Grapes are harvested strictly by hand when ripe, the bunches are carefully selected and subjected to a traditional 10-12 day maceration on the skins, during which the must is fermented at a controlled temperature. Alcoholic fermentation is followed by malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged for about 6-8 months in French oak barriques. Then the wine continues to age in bottle for another 2 to 3 months.
  • About Mottura

    It was 1927 when Pasquale Mottura looked out over the vast vineyards he had established over the years, hectare after hectare. For more than 80 years ( four generations), Pasquale's love of the land and care for his vineyards was passed down as a precious legacy from father to son. Mottura is now a leading maker of quality wines in the Salento and in Italy. Respect for tradition is combined here with technological innovation.

    To further improve quality, winemaker Emiliano Rossi was asked for assistance. Emiliano is a highly respected winemaker, who also assists winery Pratello in northern Veneto. Otherwise, all important tasks are performed by the Mottura family itself.

    The Mottura estate is located in Tuglie, a small town in the southern part of the Salento peninsula. The building is still in its original state, a beautiful farmhouse from the late 19th century in Baroque style, whose cellars hide the secrets of an old family villa. Here the wines mature slowly in oak barrels and barriques (225 liters) to develop the aromas, colors and atmospheres of the land.
