2018 Guttarolo Amphora Primitivo

Puglia, Italy

A Primitivo that is like no Primitivo you've tried before. A careful selection of Cristiano’s best fruit from his fourty year old vines, it spends six months on skins and pulp in terracotta amphora, before a long rest in bottle. Layered with savoury, brambly fruit and a dusty, herbaceous character, this will age nicely over the coming years. More smoke than a cigar shop, and more funk than Mark Wahlberg

About the maker

Whilst Cristiano Guttarolo’s vineyards and wines are unmistakingly Puglian, full of wild and sun braised fruit, his unique limestone plateau drives exceptional minerality and freshness throughout.

Sitting on a plateau of limestone some 400 metres above sea level, Christiano's vineyards benefit from a pretty unique Puglian climate in which they live. Daytime temperatures are cooler than usual thanks to a strong breeze from the sea, while the site’s elevation offers a fluctuation between day and night temperatures, allowing the grapes to ripen fully while retaining freshness and finesse. In the field, everything is organic and done entirely by hand, while in the cellar Cristiano eschews the use of additives entirely as these are the sort of wines he likes to drink.
