Santufili Primitivo Mocavero, oak matured, rich, spicy Puglian red. This top cuvee of Primitivo spends 7-8 months refining in barriques and new barrels, giving more complexity and richness. The wine is a deep red colour with hints of violet, well balanced tannin and intense bouquet of jam and spices. An absolute must for lovers of Primitivo looking for something a bit more serious. Try with some game, on a cold winters evening.

Francesco Mocavero, what a guy.

When I first met him, he barely spoke, when asked about his wine, he said, 'e molto buono', that was it! But after a while his personality shone through as sure as the sun rises over his vines into a cloudless sky almost every day on his small wine farm in Lecce. A mild-mannered gentleman with impeccable style, Francesco understands the importance of picking early to preserve freshness in the wines from an otherwise overbaked region. He picks the Primitivo sometimes as early as the second week in August and by golly, it is fresh but at the same time, soft, full of fruit and with the characteristic dark cherry sweetness. Francesco is not a natural wine maker. He works his vineyard in as healthy a way as he can whilst ensuring a decent crop of grapes each year. All his wines offer great value for money and tend to suit most palates being some of the most approachable wines we sell. If you like red wine, try Mocavero, if you want a red for a gift then Mocavero is always a safe bet. Francesco is just like that, he is a man who likes to please. It is the Puglian way.
