Morella is based in the Puglia wine region of Italy. The production is around 18 hl per hectare, which creates an absolute concentration of primary material, of highest quality which is the first and most important factor for any great wine. They use small open fermenters, hand plunging and a basket press to handle the grapes in the least aggressive manner, while allowing the maximum transfer of the grape characters to the wine.
Delicate notes of rosewood and spice are gracefully contrasted against dark cherry and dried blackberry. The wine hits the palate with intensity and a deep sense of inner energy (despite the 15% alcohol). This is a stunning and very special Primitivo.
