Why we love it
This Primitivo wine, made with grapes grown in vineyards located the area of Faggiano, on the hills behind the city of Taranto, from old vineyards and keeping the yield low as to ensure the best quality grapes.
This Primitivo has a very elegant nose with black fruit, on the palate is full, smooth, lively, velvety and a long lasting aftertaste.
The fruit in the Primitivo wine can, especially in cheap wines, be too much, too jammy, making the second glass impossible to drink, in this Primitivo the fruit is perfectly balanced by the acidity, making the wine a pleasure to drink.
This Primitivo wine pairs perfectly rich pasta dishes.
The artisan who made it
The 2006 is the year Tenuta Giustini was born, even though the current generation's grandparents had been farmers and cultivated grapes all their life and their parents before them, they wanted to put in a bottle their grandparents’ hard work, until then, the grapes were sold to local cooperatives, they wanted to show them that their hard work and care in the vineyards, could produce great wines.
Salvatore, the latest generation, started with very little financial resources, but bags of passion and dedication, and bottle by bottle, in 2015 he finally built the winery, a winery equipped with all the latest equipment, the missing link to his dream.
Tenuta Giustini has vineyards in some of the most vocated area in the Apulia region, including Manduria, where they grow Primitivo that becomes Primitivo di Manduria, the only DOC Primitivo wine.
