Masseria Surani Heracles Primitivo 2019
Region: Puglia, Italy
Bottle size: 75cl
A deep ruby red in color, it offers fascinating complexity on the nose: from floral scents of violets to rich fruity ones of black and sour cherries and strawberries, along with underlying balsamic notes, licorice and aromatic herbs.
From the vineyards of Masseria Surani, in the Salento Region. The vines are Guyot-trained and organically grown; the soils are limestone-based and are rich in iron.
Tommasi’s passion for wine, and the desire to discover and select the very best of Italian winemaking, has taken us to Puglia. Around 80 hectares of land have been purchased in Manduria, in the Salento area, one of the finest zones for the cultivation of the Primitivo grape, where viticulture has extremely ancient origins, dating back to the time of Magna Graecia. The property, which lies about 6 km from the Ionian coast, also includes a manor house called “Masseria” dating back to the early 1900s, a typical complex of agricultural buildings which originally acted as an organisational centre for all of the farming operations. Following refurbishment, the Masseria now houses a winery of 700 sqm complete with vinification and maturation facilities.
