Diciotto means ’18’ and stands for the alcohol percentage in this insane, limited release, special edition wine.
A patient green pruning of vines boasting 85 years of history gives birth to this Primitivo wine, made carefully from grapes head-trained in the old fashioned Puglian ‘Alberello’ style. Fourteen months in new medium-toasted French oak tonneaux and twelve months of further fining in bottles has matured this powerful wine which bursts with flavours of brambly blackberry, bruised raspberry, balsamic and some heavenly liquorice.
With a firm tannic structure and endless complexity, the wine starts strong and ends with melodious toasted nuances and strong spicy notes. A powerful, mesmerising and opulent Primitivo, emblematic of the grape’s stature in Puglia. Great with velvety stew or grilled meat. Decanting (and sharing) a must!
