Winemaker Notes

Manual harvest in crates. Fermentation at controlled temperature 8-12 days in a rotary winemaker. Maceration on the skins in 2-3 days. Soft pressing. Aging Nine months in stainless steel, at least five months in the bottle. No filtration.

The Story

Allegory, from the Greek, expresses the joy of drinking well.  Mariana, woman winemaker in a region where 'men' make wine, hold her own, despite her frustration that she has to prove herself daily.  Her personality is refreshing and lively like her wines, and her astute knowledge of the history of the region and of Primitivo shocked us - how much we learned from her!

The love for their land, the passion for wine, the desire to rediscover the noble Primitivo grape of Gioia del Colle drives their day to day work, and the knowledge that the earth and rich land of this region is their son's future.

Very limited production in terms of yields per vine obtained with targeted pruning to reduce the number of the bunches and careful selection during the harvesting phase. In the cellar, fermentations are triggered by indigenous yeasts only and the wine is aged in steel to preserve its natural freshness and great drinkability.

PS... for anyone who doesn't know, Primitivo is the same grape as Zinfandel in California, but actually has origins in Croatia, albeit being strictly linked now with Puglia.  Typically the ones from Italy will be slightly more earthy than the fruity, marmalade counterparts from CA.  A suggestion would be to try them side by side to see!
