The smooth and pleasant Villa Santera Primitivo Rosso Igt is the expression of richness and complexity of Primitivo del Salento.
The grapes are harvested on the second ten days of September after a short period of over ripening . This process gives to the wine a clear note of smoothness. The intense red colour is typical of Primitivo. At the nose plum, ribes and blueberry go with the elegant spices as vanilla, licorice and cloves. In the mouth is wide, smooth and persistent.
An unexpected wine.

persistent. Very good with grilled meat and ripe cheeses.
