Tasting Notes: Primitivo grapes benefit from warm climate with plenty of rain as well as long hours of sunshine and soil that contains limestone, clay or sandstone. The grapes for the Doppio Passo Primitivo Puglia IGT are harvested at two different times: one part when full ripeness is reached, the other as a later harvest. The result is a soft, round and exceptionally full-bodied wine with an amazing concentration of plum, blackberry, cherry and chocolate flavours and an appealing structure with soft tannin and acidity.
