RED WINE PRIMITIVO GIOIA DEL COLLE '17' POLVANERA 2017 DESCRIPTION

Primitivo Gioia del Colle 17 by Polvanera is a complex wine, rich, elegant and profound. The revival of this Primitivo is largely attributed to Filippo Cassano, at the helm of winery Polvanera, which acquired a national reputation and style in a few years. Modesty, competence and hard work have accompanied Filippo to the realization of this project, which has helped to bring prestige to viticulture Gioiesi. The vineyards, all in a biological system, from which is produced Primitivo Gioia del Colle is located at 350 mt. altitude, between Gioia del Colle and Acquaviva delle Fonti. On this land the trees Primitivo resists for over sixty years, thanks to a sandy-limestone soil gives the wine even more incisive minerality. A wine that deserves all the attention given to Him from Slow Wine, which has crowned the Gioia del Colle Primitivo as a great wine, and winery Polvanera with the spiral, the symbol of a company producing wines of exceptional quality.
