Masca Del Tacco Piano Chiuso Riserva Primitivo di Manduria

$44.99

Availability: 3 in stock

A deep and bright ruby red with complex aromas of wild berries and cherries, as well as fern, black pepper and cloves. Having spent over 9 months in large barrels, the wine has a lovely balsamic layer which lifts this wine to the next level. Powerful and elegant with sufficient freshness to give it fantastic drinkability. The gentle tannins give it structure, leading to a near infinite finish! A truly special glass of wine from one of our favourite grape varieties.

Around the area of Manduria, there is an ancient residence surrounded by an old bush vine vineyards of Primitivo older than seventy years “closed” by a wall. In France some of the best vineyards are closed by walls; in fact in the past Cistercian monks used to separate – or close – with walls some vineyards when, tasting the soil, they perceived changes in its mineral composition. Grapes coming from those “closed” vineyards – or “Clos” from the French – would have had a different qualities and would have been the maximum expression of those soils. Taking up this tradition, Felice Mergé becomes the promoter and executor of “closed vineyard project”, emphasizing that small area through the production of a new wine: “Piano Chiuso” Primitivo di Manduria Riserva, the best expression of a territory with not very well known origins.
