Lunaria Ruminat Primitivo
WHY WE LOVE IT
- We appreciate the spicy element that you get with Primitivo when it is grown in the seaside hills of Terre di Cheti…This is a rich and well-balanced Italian table red.
Varietal Composition: 100% Primitivo
Elaboration: After a careful selection, the grapes are destammed and pressed, the skins are left in contact with the must and its yeasts for 20 days at a controlled temperature of 75/79° F. Aged in stainless steel tanks, followed by ageing in bottle.
Tasting Notes: Bright ruby red color, in the nose plums, carobs, cherries. The palate is warm, fairly tannic, intense, with a red fruit jam finish.
Cantina Orsogna is a (very) progressive cooperative of thirty one growers in Italy’s central province of Abruzzo. The company was one of the first of its kind to move to 100% organic farming back in 2002, and they are the largest Biodynamic wine producer in Italy, having been certified by Demeter since 2005. We are currently working with their fruit-forward, sometimes experimental “Lunaria” line which showcases single varietal bottlings from grapes well-suited to the climate of the coastal Terre di Chieti subregion.
