Masseria Altemura Sasseo Primitivo 2018

Sasseo, meaning stony, is an indication of the rough life it’s led so far, the grapes are grown on hot, flat and dry soils and really have to work to succeed. But, as a result, we’re gifted with a wine that is intensely ruby red and filled with those typical Primitivo characteristics of cherry, aniseed and sweet spice, rounded off with hints of lavender – sweet not soapy! It spends time in Slavonian and French oak before being aged in the bottle and then released to the market. The winemakers suggest serving this with roasted red meats and lamb, and we couldn’t agree more!

An intense ruby red, it offers scents of sour cherries, violets, liquorice and sweet spicy hints. It is velvety, warm and persistent: a wine to sip slowly together with a substantial dish or whilst just reading a book.
