Vinous Reverie Notes
Fatalone’s 2020 Teres Primitivo is a unique and delicious light red wine that pays homage to the Petrera family’s ancestors and their winemaking practices. The wine comes from only the free-run must of the Racemi, which is the juice of the second budding fruit of the Gioia del Colle Primitivo plant (yielding only 1.8kgs/hectare), which has less of a full-body character, a more delicate palate, and a lovely sweet and floral smell. The whole berries spend 36 hours on the skins, continued natural fermentation, and then had 6 months of aging. Tasting Notes: Sunset red color, tending to ruby, lively and brilliant; scent typically fruity; balanced and very pleasant taste of cherry and berry fruits, rich in minerality and freshness. Great to drink slightly cool during the Summer. Food Pairing: A very versatile wine: a great match with fried foods, salads, seafood appetizers and grilled vegetables. Excellent with fresh cheese, roasted beef and various kinds of hams. Ideal match with pizza.
