Tasting notes

Rosé wine Natural and Organic.

Francesco Marra Primitivo Rosato 2022 is a rosé wine that on the nose reveals aromas of ripe fruits such as strawberries and cherries, accompanied by Mediterranean herbs, saline notes, and a hint of chocolate. Its finish is slightly ethereal with well-balanced tannins. On the palate, it is elegant, supported by soft tannins and a vibrant mineral acidity. The finish is long and harmonises perfectly with the perceived aromas.

About Francesco Marra Primitivo Rosato

A return to the origins entails a revival of ancient practices and materials. In the modern context, this movement not only seeks to reconnect with traditional methods but also to appreciate their effectiveness and sustainability compared to contemporary technologies. Francesco Marra, a winemaker from Salento in Puglia (Italy), has adeptly revived this traditional viticulture. This approach is evident in his commitment to using local terracotta amphorae known as "capases." These amphorae, used since antiquity for storing and fermenting wine due to their controlled porosity and ability to regulate temperature, allow for micro-oxygenation that positively influences the flavour profile and development of the wine.

Of the 70 hectares of vineyards Marra owns, only 3 hectares are reserved for producing his own wines. The rest is sold to other wineries. This is how Francesco Marra Primitivo Rosato was born, a rosé wine made from the native primitivo variety planted on red soil rich in clay, iron, and potassium. It is organically farmed and harvested by hand at the optimal ripeness. In the winery, the selected grapes ferment with indigenous yeasts for 20 days in these ancient local containers with a capacity of 250 litres, and then the wine remains in these same "capase" for 10 months. Finally, it is bottled without filtration.

Demonstrating that some techniques have stood the test of time, Francesco Marra Primitivo Rosato not only honours the rich winemaking history of Puglia but also offers a sustainable and natural product, free from chemical additives and with minimal intervention. A fresh, harmonious, and saline rosé deeply rooted in tradition.
