Wine maker notes
Primitivo is one of Puglia’s most noble and ancient grape varieties. Benedictine monks first imported it into the area in the early 19th century, probably from Croatia. It is trained exclusively to the bush (alberello) method, and its yield per hectare is by nature quite low. Because of their exposition and elevation, the vineyards exhibit a distinctive personality compared to primitivo vineyards elsewhere in Puglia; the wine is not quite as high in alcohol, although it remains powerful in this respect, and it possesses an elegance and fragrance that set it apart from other wines produced from the same grape.

Producer
Brothers Beniamino and Alberto, working together with a team of viticulturalists and oenologists, have created a modern winery highly respected throughout the world for the high quality of its wines and for its commitment to developing the full potential of local native grape varieties. The preservation of the ancient grapes, and careful utilisation of innovative winemaking practices, have turned Botromagno into a model winery, striving not only for the highest quality wine but respectful as well of its local environment and dedicated to the protection of the health of those who drink its wines.The history of our winery must be considered within the larger context of a unique area, known, for very good reason, as “The Other Puglia.” Here the grapevine cultivation goes back 2,500 years.Frederick II of Swabia made this area his residence, calling it a “garden of delights,” and he contributed substantially to the development of local viticulture. Against this rich cultural background, the D’Agostino family decided, in 1991, to re-launch the venerable Cantina Sociale, utilising expertise acquired in other fields, and fashioned it into a modern winemaking operation with ancient roots.
