Masso Antico Primitivo
Masso Antico Primitivo, with its ruby red color and its complex bouquet, is characterized by intense and fine aromas, that go from mature fruit to spicy notes.
The grapes used for Masso Antico Primitivo are grown using the vine training method known as “Alberello”, a traditional system of the cultural and oenological heritage of Apulia. The rigorous hand-picking is followed by a meticulous selection of the grapes, dried on the plants, thanks to the sun and the mild sea winds. The wine is then aged in French oak barrels for about 6 months. The result is an outstanding full-bodied red wine.
Masso Antico is an eclectic range of wines from Southern Italy. Produced in the provinces of Puglia and Abruzzo by winemakers Daniele and Carlo, Masso Antico wines are modern interpretations of classic local grape varieties.
Their name derives from the old farmhouse or ‘Masseria’ which was built on their first ever vineyards in Puglia. This very imposing ‘Masseria’ was covered by a huge old gnarled grape vine, which has since become their mark and the symbol of their roots and strong attachment to their land.
