The average age of the vines
85 years old approx.
Alberello Pugliese, 4,200 plants per
2,000-3,000 kg approx. per hectare
Grapes harvested by hand and gently placed in small airy boxes to preserve their integrity.
14 months in medium toasted French oak tonneau and 12 months in bottle.
Sincere and careful expression of Primitivo. Intense notes of ripe fruit open the door to pleasant touches of tobacco, in a soft finish of chocolate and coffee.
Velvety and enveloping, with tannins that are able to expand nicely and leave a pleasant aftertaste. With a thick but light texture, it lingers on the palate with tenacity.
Schola Sarmenti is one of the wineries in the very hot and sunny Puglia in southernmost Italy that knows how to vinify the wines so that they are fresh and with a nice fruity taste. Founded in 1999. Produces great wines with a touch of the terroir of the Salento area. Some of the vineyards are very close to the sea. Vines that are up to 80 years old. Schola Sarmenti aims to preserve and use the old Alberello Pugliese cultivation system with free-standing canes that support themselves as shrubs or small trees. This form is often used in very hot regions, as the plant contributes its own shade. Gives low yield and high quality from each vine.
