Primitivo di Salento Doppio Passo 2019 75cl 13% ABV
Primitivo di Salento Doppio Passo, Puglia, Italy
This is a bold and powerful Red Wine made in a similar manner to Ripasso using a portion of dried Primitivo grapes and fermenting the wine a second time on the dried skins.
As a result, it is fresh and aromatic with delicious concentrated plum, blackberry, cherry and chocolate flavours. It has a good balanced between naturally soft tannins and light acidity.
This Wine is perfect when served with spicy pasta dishes, roast pork or beef, game dishes and full flavoured hard cheeses.
The Salento penninsula has a hot marine climate with cool night breezes producing concentrated red wines with high alcohol and soft, rounded tannins. Doppio Passo began as a retailer in the Veneto region until the family expanded their horizons to selling wines across Central Europe and beyond.
The company is now run by the third generation with a portfolio of wines produced in some of Italy's finest regions.
