Primitivo Riserva Gioia del Colle Fatalone, organic, low sulphur, rich, intense, rustic, full-bodied Natural red from the South of Italy. It is exotically rich, super-ripe and oozing scents of fruits-in-alcohol and spicy-toasted wood. For those who love the intensity of of a hot climate red which packs a serious punch right the way through the bottle, this is the wine for you! But despite it’s intensity, this doesn’t lack complexity. Drink (slowly between two) with slow roasted shank or a beef stew that has been bubbling all day.

At the end of the 19th century Nicola Petrera, an ancestor of the current owner, chose the Spinomarino hill, the most aired and sunny one in the Gaudella area, to grow Primitivo grapes.

Filippo Petrera who oversees production today, has preserved both tradition and passion for this Primitivo until this very day. The upmost care is taken over the quality of production, with organic viticulture practiced, and music therapy in the cellar so as to promote the micro oxygenation and the activity of the living micro flora in the wine. Use of sulphur is limited, as the grapes are transferred straight into the winery from harvest, and all the steps of production take place on sight. Fermentation takes place naturally, and they are bottled without filtration. Their entire operation is powered by solar energy, making them carbon neutral.
