A deep ruby red, this Primitivo exhibits a rich, spacious nose, with generous wild berry fruit, dark cherry and plum, enriched by subtle notes of tobacco leaf and roast espresso bean, then spicier impressions of vanilla and cocoa powder. Superbly structured in the mouth, with a velvety texture and rounded mouthfeel, fine-grained tannins and judicious acidity. Impressively rich yet crisp, it concludes with a finish laced with fragrant cocoa powder, espresso bean and vanilla.
Food Pairing: A terrific sipping wine but superb with hearty courses, red meat, and game, as well as with aged cheeses.
The authentic passion of a man finds the challenge for his innate vocation in the encounter with a mysteriously strong and wild nature. This is how Masseria Capoforte was born. From Ettore’s passion for the cultivation of vines, from his love for the tradition of a centuries-old art, which celebrates the partnership between the generosity of nature and the determination of human capacity.
