The soils are well known for being sunny and rich in red clay. The

closeness to the Mediterranean Sea and its warm and windy climate are essential to the full ripeness of the Primitivo grapes. The training system adopted in this area is the Head Training, which produces a low yield, yet ensures an excellent maturation. The origins of the Primitivo grapevine are ancient, tracing back to the Greek Colonies. This wine is aged in Slovenian oak barrels for 15 months.
