Borgo Reale Primitivo takes its name from the Salento district, the well known wine-vocated Apulian area in which its vines are grown. This dark cherry red wine with a purple rim shows an intense bouquet, with rich fruitiness hinting at blackberries and boysenberries followed by smooth vanilla coming from the 8 months oak aging. A big flavorsome wine with a lingering red fruit aftertaste.
The wine has an intense depth of color. A great, elegant bouquet, deep and filled with jammy fruit, scent of vanilla and tobacco leaves, rose petals, figs and a subtle hint of wood. On the palate it is filled with interlocking sensations, sweet fruit flavors on the entry, then deep ripetannins holding everything together right into the long, dry finish.
A real son of Southern Italy, this great red wine is produced in the region of Puglia. It is the same vine that American winemakers know as Zinfandel. The warm, windy climate close to the Mediterranean Sea, is essential for the full maturity of the Primitivo grapes. The soils are well known for being rich in red clay. The growing system in this area gives a low yield to the vines and is a great help for an excellent maturation.
