The power of Primitivo is dressed in a deep but elegant pink to create a Primitivo rosé that will take you straight to the Salento beaches at sunset.
Antonio De Quarto harvests his Primitivo grapes strictly by hand, selecting only the best bunches, in the second decade of September. Fermentation takes place naturally and aging involves first a part in steel and then one in the bottle.
The color of this wine is not the classic rosé wine, but is more intense and vivid, precisely because of the grape variety from which it is made, Primitivo; its almost red pink brings to mind the splendid corals of the Maediterranean Sea.
On the nose it is delicate and fresh.
On the palate it is harmonious in all its essences and fragrant enough.
Perfect for aperitifs, it goes very well with cured meats and not very mature cheeses; it goes well with pasta and white meat, but you absolutely must try it with fish soup, for an all-territorial pairing.
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
A glass of wine a day keeps the doctor away!
It is clear that wine is not harmful to our bodies, as a substance given to us by nature in the form of fruit from which man over the centuries has managed to obtain this heavenly beverage. We can guarantee that our winemakers work by following ancient methods, supported by the aid of contemporary technologies: this is why we feel confident in affirming that Italian wine, the real one, is a panacea for body and mind.
The presence of polyphenols in wine (to a lesser extent in white wines and in large quantities in reds, especially when aged) provides constant protection against cellular oxidation, the main culprit of aging and cellular deterioration.
Perhaps even more obvious and important, however, are the psychological benefits that a good glass of Italian wine can give you: the lightheartedness it gives to an evening with friends, the romance it helps to create in a couple’s dinner, the passion it is able to unleash in anyone lucky enough to taste its essences.
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
