"Cubardi" Primitivo Salento IGT 2019 - Schola Sarmenti

Cubardi is an important Primitivo that comes from vineyards 65 years old. A small natural work of art capable of producing highly concentrated fruit. Few bunches, super rich, which are enhanced by Schola Sarmenti through careful processing. Vineyards cultivated with the traditional Apulian gobelet system that requires great skill and, unfortunately, also a lot of manual work. After harvesting, the grapes are delicately placed in small aerated boxes and delivered to the winery to be processed within a few hours. Then, after vinification, the wine matures for a period of about 6 months in second-passage French oak tonneaux, and then completes its refinement with a further 8 months in the bottle. The result is an intense and concentrated red, with notes of ripe fruit and hints of tobacco, chocolate and coffee. In the mouth it is velvety and enveloping, with tannins capable of expanding delicately. A wine with great personality that undoubtedly requires an important pairing. Excellent with large meat stews, it can also be a pleasant glass to sip slowly while chatting in the evening.

The protection of the territory, of its beauty and richness, of the traditions that have their origins far back in time, of the traditional form of gobelet vine-training, so tiring to work but capable of giving wines with a unique character. The ancient dry stone walls that for centuries have delimited the fields and the vines that sink their roots into a red soil, rich in precious micro elements. All this is Schola Sarmenti, a beautiful company from Puglia, founded in 1999. We are in Salento, and more precisely in Nardò. A land of great wines from indigenous grapes such as Fiano, Negroamaro, Primitivo and Susumaniello. Ancient varieties, cultivated as in the past, and harvested strictly by hand. It is the science of winemaking, the dedication and passion of those who work to do the rest. And it is because of all this that today Schola Sarmenti can be rightly considered one of the most interesting realities of the Apulian wine scene.
