2019 Rivera Castel del Monte Triusco Primitivo
With this beautiful Triusco winery Rivera strives for a subtly balanced mix of the characteristics of the Primitivo grape. The grapes used for this wine were grown in 2 representative, but different terroirs. 60% of the blend comes from Manduria where the variety most represents the full body and character. The harvest here takes place in the last week of August. The remaining 40% comes from the Gioia del Colle DOC area, where the cooler climate and rocky soils give wines of greater elegance and balance. These grapes are harvested in the 2nd week of September.
This Triusco Primitivo has an opaque purple color and an intense bouquet of blackberries, dark currant jam and cocoa. The taste is very full, warm and soft with fragrant notes of dried plums, cassis and dark chocolate. This wine has a pleasantly long finish. Preferably served at 18 ° -20 ° C. This tasty red wine goes well with beef, venison, lamb and dishes with a rich taste. Also delicious with pasta dishes. One of the finer Primitivo wines with an excellent price/quality ratio.
