Askos Primitivo

Salento IGT

Askos Primitivo
ASKOS is the name of our project of rediscovery and selection of ancient Apulian grape varieties that are almost disappearing. Wines are produced by using exclusively these indigenous varietals, cultivated in their most suitable terroirs according the traditional method. We have chosen a Greek “Askos” (=Decanter) as a symbol of the wine making, a practice that in Puglia was started by the ancient Greeks.

Tasting Notes

Ruby red in colour with bright violet shimmer. On the nose it is strongly intense, rich and elegant, with red and black berries, plums, sweet spices, brushwood and Mediterranean scrub. On the palate it is a big flavor with a sweet and fat start followed by a dense and persistent finish. Long and spiced aftertaste.
