Caiaffa Primitivo Puglia 2019

£13.99 GBP

Situated on the beautiful northern Puglian coast, Caiaffa is an organic producer with a strong ethos of working in harmony with nature. Its vineyards are nestled in Tavoliere, an area once submerged under the Adriatic Sea, which benefits from unique mineral deposits in its rich limestone soils.

This beautifully balanced Primitivo showcases the influence of the land, the Mediterranean climate and the year-round care taken in the vineyard. There is gentle winemaking at work here too, in the shape of spontaneous ferments using wild yeasts. 

The result is a real medley of fruits - fresh and ripe, red and dark. In the mouth, it has a lovely creamy texture plus a warming hint of spice on the finish. Despite all that richness, it manages to remain bright and lifted throughout. A class balancing act.
