The Acini Spargoli wine takes its name from a typical conformation of the grapes of the bunch where the grains are well spaced from each other, and do not put pressure on each other. This allows the bunch and individual grapes to grow and ripen freely and faster, concentrating the sugars more and allowing a greater accumulation in the grain of all those chemicals that will characterize aromas and flavors. Acini Spargoli is therefore already a rare wine in itself, produced by Bruno Garofano, one of the leading experts of Primitivo di Manduria in the whole world.
Acini Spargoli is a classic wine from Salentine enology, with its body and its imposing structure, but with a power that is expertly dosed to find an incredible balance between strength and elegance. The aromas are typical of the primitive, very fruity, ripe fruit, blackberries, cherries, jam. In the mouth it is majestic, rich, with a high alcohol content but not excessive. The light wooden passage gives a slightly more complex tannin but is well proportioned to the characteristics of the wine. A warm, mellow wine to be enjoyed in special moments, with a good company and accompanied by the joy of talking on the table.
This Primitivo di Manduria is made from grapes produced by 40-year-old sapling plants with the harvest that takes place in the first ten days of September and the grapes are collected and stored in crates. The maceration of the skins is carried out for about 7-8 days in traditional vitrified “fermenters” with the start of fermentation through indigenous yeasts; and a subsequent inoculation of selected yeasts to finish the fermentation to the end. Following is the drawing off, the completion of the alcoholic fermentation and the refining for 10 months in third or fourth passage of Allier barriques. The wine then continues to mature in steel and then the evolution continues for 6 months in bottle before being released for consumption.
The wine is produced in limited quantities and is therefore an exclusive wine, but offers the opportunity for everyone to try a fantastic emotion at an affordable price compared to the quality that this wine has in its body.
