Masseria Surani Heracles Primitivo 2017 (90 VM)
“Good full ruby. Red cherry, dark plum and underbrush on the nose, complemented by sexy spices. Broad, lush and sweet, with a high-toned quality to the perfumed flavors of red berries and spices. Finishes broad and horizontal, with smooth, ripe tannins and nicely persistent spicy perfume.”
This 100% Primitivo is rich and forward, with notes of baking spice, licorice, blackberry and black cherry fruit, as well as hints of chocolate. Despite the boldness of the flavors, the wine retains bright acidity and restrained alcohol levels, keeping it fresh throughout.
Masseria Surani is located in Manduria, one of the most renowned areas in Puglia for the cultivation of the native Primitivo grape. Manduria was first colonized in 700 BC by the ancient Greeks, and Masseria Surani pays homage to the winemaking heritage of the area by producing high quality wines that respect the terroir and tradition of the land on which they are cultivated.
