 Zolla Primitivo di Manduria

Zolla Primitivo di Manduria is ruby red in colour with a violet hue. It has intense aromas of red cherries, blackberries and hints of spice and leather. These aromas follow through on to the palate which is rich and velvety with generous tannins and great length.

The vineyards are mostly situated in the communes of Manduria and Sava and are owned by growers with whom Filippo has been working with for many years.

Production is lower than its potential, which ensures the best quality grapes are selected. The red soils are calcareous clay and rich in iron, minerals and nutrients. 80% of the grapes come from old bush vines and the rest from trained vines that are at least 20 years old greatly adding to the Zolla Primitivo di Manduria taste.

The wines of the 2017 vintage are the result of a harvest preceded by a cold and snowy winter, which was then followed by a hot and dry spring and summer. This weather favoured the red berry varieties producing excellent reds.

The grapes were gently pressed and cooled to 10ºC for a maceration period of 8-10 days with regular pumping over. Yeasts were added to start fermentation, which took place under temperature controlled conditions of up to 20ºC. The wine was then transferred to second and third use oak barriques for 6-8 months before bottling.

This is Farnese’s venture in Puglia (they are also responsible for Gran Sasso, Zabù, Vesevo, Tufarello and others). The Zolla Primitivo di Manduria wines are made at two wineries in the province of Taranto on the western flank of Salento.

The style of the wines – fresh whites, soft and generous reds – will be familiar to those who buy their other wines, as winemaker Filippo Baccalaro is the driving force behind this label. Filippo, a native of Piemonte, has been working in Puglia for almost two decades.

He was attracted by the rich, ripe flavours of the fruit, and has the potential to capture these flavours with minimal use of technology and a lot of know-how.
