About
Polvanera Primitivo Gioia del Colle DOC "15" 2022 is an intense and expressive red wine produced from Primitivo grapes, known for their strong character and rich nuances of taste. This wine comes from the Gioia del Colle DOC region in Italy, where the sunny climate and mountain soil give the wine a unique character and complexity.
Producer
In 2003, continuing his family's farming traditions, Filippo Cassano embarked on an ambitious project to popularize Primitivo grapes and other local varieties used in his native land to create excellent quality wines. To this end, he acquired and restored an old estate in the Marquesan region, near Gioia del Colle. The gardens surrounding the estate were home to the wonderful Primitivo vines, which were planted between 1860 and 1880. The word Polvanera in the winery's name indicates the typical dark color of the fields. A modern wine cellar with a masonry tasting room has been built next to the estate. In a cellar carved in limestone, the temperature and humidity of the air remain constant throughout the year, and the cellar itself goes underground in places to a depth of eight meters and serves as a quality mark for the excellent Polvanera products. It is here that Polvanera wines mature and develop before they become Primitivo Gioia del Colle DOC.

Primitivo is a dark-skinned grape famous for producing dark, bold, tannic wines, with very intensive jammy bouquet with spice hints. Primitivo styles ranges from medium to full-body with slightly sweet aftertaste.
This wonderful land is rich with olive trees and wine. However for a long time the Puglia region wines had a notoriety of being "flat" and highly alcoholic. Local winemakers were able to overcome this situation as the wine and become more diverse.
