How we made this wine
The vines for Casa Marrone Primitivo were planted around 20-25 years ago. You will find them in the reddish, iron-rich soil of Puglia in southern Italy. From springtime when the first buds are bursting until August when the grapes are fully ripe, the vines enjoy long days with constant sunshine. Along with cool sea breezes from their crystal-blue neighbour, the Adriatic sea. When nature is this kind, it is easy to grow with organic methods.
Primitivo is at home when grown in Puglia. ”Primo” means ”the first” in Italian, and Primitivo is in fact among the first red grape varieties to ripen. The resulting wines are deep in colour and have smooth tannins. They reveal intense aromas of ripe cherries, blackberry, strawberry, cinnamon and herbs. Nature’s gift to Primitivo is it’s high natural acidity, which helps to keep the wines fresh as they ages.
Towards the third of fourth week of August the grapes are getting ready for harvest. After a careful picking and a soft pressing, the grape skins spend 10-12 days with the juice to get its distinctive colour and aroma. The wine is then aged in stainless steel and oak. We hope that you will enjoy the southern Italian soul that we tried to capture in each sip of Casa Marrone Primitivo.
