Masseria Primitivo wine tasting Puglia
Masseria Li Reni and Primitivo di Manduria wine DOC define a perfect pair thanks to the production of one of the Salento area's wines of excellence.
The facility boasts 32 hectares of vineyards located in the Manduria area, which has always been home to the Primitivo grape variety.
It is here that a delicate grape is grown that is not easy to manage, with compact bunches and large amounts of sugars in the berries and anthocyanins in the skins.
It is a grape that suffers from excessive humidity, prolonged drought and spring frosts.

The Mediterranean climate and the pronounced sea breezes to which the grape plants are exposed allow Masseria Li Reni's vines to grow in the best possible way.
The result is a complex and powerful wine with a deep red color tending toward purplish and an alcohol content of around 14°.
The fruity taste is reminiscent of plums, cherries and currants. While the aftertaste ensures notes of licorice. Peculiarities that stem from the location of the land: the proximity to the sea allows the grapes to acquire valuable minerals that play a key role in aroma, texture and shape. Primitivo di Manduria pairs perfectly with important dishes rich in flavor, full-bodied first courses, roasted, stewed or grilled red meats, game and aged cheeses.
