The Vigne Vecchie Legganda series is the highlight of the Vigneti di Salento Prodution by Farnese. It is produced from hand-picked Primitivo vines, which are over 70 years old and yield a correspondingly small yield of high-quality berries.
The Farnese Primitivo Vigne Vecchie 2015 has an intense ruby color.
The fragrance shows complex aromas of dark berries, plums and cherries with nuances of tobacco and fine herbs. The body is juicy and full, but on the other hand also fruity and rich in fine tannins. A high-end Primitivo , which has received numerous medals and awards over the last years.
Grapes: 100% Negroamaro.
Colour: Deep ruby red with garnet red reflections.
Nose: Intense and complex aroma with spicy hints of tobacco and leather, and fruity notes of berries.
Palate: To the mouth, it is impressive and robust, with well-trained tannins and a special smoothness, that make the wine persistent.
Food Pairings: Good with rich first courses, red meats and seasoned cheeses.
