    "Vola" Primitivo Terra d'Otranto DOC 2022
  • From the heart of Apulia comes Vola, Primitivo Terre d'Otranto DOP, an intense and vibrant red that encapsulates the soul of Salento. It is produced by the Menhir winery in Minervino di Lecce. Primitivo in purity, it offers a unique sensory experience, capable of conquering the palate of the most demanding enthusiasts. The grapes used for the production of this wine are rooted in a unique terroir, characterised by sandy-loam soils on calcareous rock. The warm, Mediterranean climate, mitigated by sea breezes, creates the ideal conditions for the growth of grapes of the highest quality, rich in sugars and aromas. Harvested by hand in the first week of September, vinification is traditional in red, with temperature-controlled maceration designed to enhance the aromas and flavours of the original grape variety. At the end of the transformation, the wine matures in the bottle for a few months, completing its evolution process. In the glass, it has an impenetrable ruby colour with violet reflections. On the nose, it reveals an explosion of fruity blueberry aromas, interwoven with notes of Mediterranean herbs, vanilla and balsamic hints. In the mouth, it is dense and enveloping, with extraordinary drinkability and a lingering finish. Good already today, the producers recommend uncorking it within 5-10 years, pairing it with main meat dishes, such as Angus fillet with cardoncelli mushrooms, or with mature cheeses such as medium-aged canestrato.

    Menhir was born in the early 2000s from the dream of Gaetano Marangelli, an Apulian agricultural entrepreneur with a passion for his land and its native vines. From a small business project, in the space of 'relatively' few years, Menhir has turned into a reference wine reality, with a production of over a million bottles that carry the name of Apulia throughout the world. The beating heart of Menhir are the native Apulian vines, such as Negroamaro, Primitivo, Susumaniello and Malvasia Nerai, cultivated with respect for the land and according to the principles of sustainability. Menhir is inspired by the winemaking tradition of Apulia, reinterpreting it in a modern and innovative way. In fact, the company invests in cutting-edge technology and sustainable farming practices to produce wines of the highest quality that reflect the region's unique terroir.
