Production technique

The selected grape harvest between september and october is followed by a maceration of 15-20 days. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks (27°C), for a 8 months first fining. Followed by an ageing period of 12 months in French oak barriques. The winery uses many innovative methods in order to obtain the best quality. In the field, where we use “Green manure” fertilization technique, we select the best grapes and remove the few imperfect ones, during the harvesting process, where the grapes are quickly brought to the winery, so that they are not exposed to climatic factors.

Description and food pairings

This finely crafted wine comes from selected grapes of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, grown in our winery.
“Primigenius” is toned with well balanced freshness and tannins, rich of black cherry, plum and licorice aromas with mineral hint and gentle spices. Very versatile in pairings, from antipasto to meat dishes or game sauce.
