Schola Sarmenti ‘Corimei’ Sweet Primitivo 2020



Schola Sarmenti’s late harvest ‘meditation’ wine, a sweet IGT 100% Primitivo, is made from vines of approximately 65 years of age, with grapes that have dried naturally, been picked by hand and laid into airy crates for further hand selection at the winery.

After fermentation and ageing in stainless steel tanks, the resulting wine is a symphonic ensemble of thriving red fruits and black cherry aromas, with a variegated, harmonious succession of spices on the finish. A supreme sweetness warms your palate, with velvety cherry and damask plum and hints of almond on the finish.

Corimei is a wine that not only exalts the flavour of rich desserts but also matches perfectly with seasoned full flavoured cheese.

Producer: Schola Sarmenti

Schola Sarmenti, a stunning winery with soaring ceilings sculpted from local tuff and lecce stone, dates from the mid-nineteenth century and is run by the Marra and Calabrese families. The vineyards are farmed organically and within sight of the warm waters of the Adriatic. Schola Sarmenti practises "green harvesting", where a portion of the immature crop is sacrificed (i.e. picked and discarded) mid-season to increase the ripeness and quality of the remaining bunches. It also uses the ancient Puglian vine training system, Alberello.
