Description

Borgo dei Trulli Duna Mirante Primitivo di Manduria DOCG is a full-bodied wine produced from grapes sourced from vineyards located only 400 meters from the Ionian Sea. An “authentic” and genuine Primitivo without added sulphites and only selected yeasts used for fermentation.

Masseria Borgo dei Trulli, to give it its full name, is a new wine venture made by Orion Wines, a company created to bring together interesting wines from small growers and wineries from all over Italy. The company was created by Luca Pomaro and winemaker Alessandro Michelon with the premise of producing wines from indigenous grapes that express the typicity of the particular region where they are grown. The Masseria Borgo dei Trulli estate is located in the heart of Salento and is owned and managed by Orion wines with Alessandro Michelon as head winemaker. Around 80% of wine produced at the estate is red wine produced from Negroamaro and Primitivo with some white wine, including Vermentino.

Borgo dei Trulli Duna Mirante Primitivo di Manduria is made from grapes sourced from the coastal dunes of the area “Monaco Mirante” near the town of Campomarino (commune of Maruggio) – in the Italian southern region of Puglia. Trulli’s vineyards lie a mere 400 meters from the Ionian Sea and are protected from the sea and salt by the the large sand dunes. These dunes are also a protected natural reserve, where typical Mediterranean herbs (rosemary, thyme and oregano amongst others) grow wild. It is a very unusual wine-growing area.

The vines are trained using the ancient “alberello” training technique. The average age of the vines is around 60-70 years old. Production per plant is approximately 1 kg of grapes per plant, thus the production of this wine is very limited.

The grapes are harvested at the beginning of or in mid-September. They are left on the vines for approximately 8-10 days following maturation in order to benefit form a later harvest. After de-stemming, the grapes are not crushed, allowing them to remain intact, reducing damage to the skins and optimizing colour extraction. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 23-25°C for 8-10 days. Frequent remontage and delestage are carried out during the fermentation in order to achieve soft extraction of aromas and gentle tannins. After racking, malolactic fermentation is induced. The wine is aged for 1 year in oak casks. Only produced in the best vintages. 

Masseria Borgo dei Trulli is named after the traditional Apulian dry stone huts with a conical roof. These are known as a “trullo” or “trulli” in the plural and feature in the brand logo.

Tasting Notes

Borgo dei Trulli Duna Mirante Primitivo di Manduria DOCG is ink-red in colour, with intense balsamic notes of eucalyptus, thyme, dark fruits, and scents of the sea itself. On the palate it is very concentrated, with salty notes of dark red fruit, plums, and Mediterranean herbs. Powerful and firm, yet austere, elegant and velvety at the same time.

Serve With

Perfect with rich meat dishes and stews, paired with mature cheeses or simply as a meditation wine.
