Masseria Surani Heracles Primitivo 2017 (92 JS)
“Dried cedar, dried red cherries and lots of dried-meat and tar character. Balanced and very tight for this variety, boasting beautiful tension and agile acidity, not to mention concentrated dark fruit.”
This 100% Primitivo is rich and forward, with notes of baking spice, licorice, blackberry and black cherry fruit, as well as hints of chocolate. Despite the boldness of the flavors, the wine retains bright acidity and restrained alcohol levels, keeping it fresh throughout.
Masseria Surani is located in Manduria, one of the most renowned areas in Puglia for the cultivation of the native Primitivo grape. Manduria was first colonized in 700 BC by the ancient Greeks, and Masseria Surani pays homage to the winemaking heritage of the area by producing high quality wines that respect the terroir and tradition of the land on which they are cultivated.
