Red Wine Feudi Salentini 125 Primitivo Biologico 2019. Cosimo and Maria Teresa Varvaglione are the third generation of their family to run the Feudi Salentini estate which is set in the idyllic Italian region of Salento. Set close to the Mediterranean sea and surrounded by olive groves, the estate enjoys a warm climate with ample sunshine which produces perfectly ripe grapes. Inspired by the history of the estate and the local landscape, Cosimo and Maria strive to produce top quality wines using both traditional methods and cutting-edge modern technology. The grapes for this wine are grown organically in the province of Taranto and carefully selected to ensure only good quality fruit goes into the bottle. The grapes are macerated and fermented in temperature-controlled tanks to preserve varietal typicity and freshness before being transferred to French oak casks for ageing. Vibrant cassis, cherry and plum define the nose while the first sip reveals a velvety smooth texture, ample ripe tannins and a robust full body. The intense dark fruit flavours make this a great partner for red meat dishes like steak or hearty vegetable dishes like aubergine parmigiana. It can also be cellared for a few more years if desired.

Red Wine Feudi Salentini Collezione 53 Old Vines Primitivo di Manduria 2019. It is recommended to decant it for half an hour before service. Founded in 1994, in Leporano, the Feudi Salentini winery is located in one of the most beautiful areas of Salento, in Puglia, a region characterized by vineyards, centuries-old olive trees, and bathed by a crystalline sea. Here wine production is favored by the optimal climatic conditions guaranteed by the mild sea breeze that embraces the coast. In the vineyards, the vines are still Alberello trained and the grapes are hand-picked as tradition dictates. Feudi Salentini produces the two most emblematic vines of Puglia (Primitivo and Negramaro) but also white grape varieties that have shown excellent results, especially Verdeca and Malvasia. The Collection 53 Old Vines Primitivo di Manduria is produced with manually selected grapes from old vines cultivated according to ancient family traditions. The vinification and maceration take place at a controlled temperature of 26 ° – 28 ° C, and the wine is then left to refine in French and American oak barrels for at least 14 months. The resulting wine has a deep red color with intense purple hues. On the nose, the aromatic notes are intense and reminiscent of forest fruit jam. On the palate, the wine is round, warm and dense and perfectly expresses the terroir. It goes deliciously with game, red meat and aged cheeses.
Red Wine Feudi Salentini Gocce Primitivo di Manduria 2019. Set in a gorgeous corner of Salento surrounded by vineyards, olive trees and the Mediterranean Sea, Feudi Salentini specialises in delicious wines made according to local winemaking traditions.

The grapes are then macerated and fermented in temperature controlled tanks and left to mature in a combination of French and American oak barrels for 10 months. The result is a luscious full bodied red wine with ample dark berry and cherry flavours seasoned with licorice, bitter chocolate, cinnamon and cloves from the oak ageing.
