Tenuta Viglione, Puglia
Tenuta Viglione, started by Giovanni Zullo in 1937, to this day remains in the same family and the current generation of the Zullo family are now preparing their children to take over the baton. Tenuta Viglione's vineyards sit in the Murgian Hills between 300 and 500 meters above sea level, which is high for Puglia. The soils here are formed of clay and limestone and are mineral-rich.
Primitivo is one of the most planted grapes in Puglia along with Nero di Troia and Negroamaro. The grape was first introduced to the region in the town of Gioia del Colle in the 18th century where it was cultivated by the priest Francesco Filippo Indellicati. It was Francesco that coined the name Primitivo, reflecting its early ripening nature - Primitivo roughly translates to first to ripen. Primitivo has been confirmed as being genetically identical to Zinfandel. Since this discovery, its popularity has been making a comeback. Primitivo is big and powerful, displaying flavours of raspberry, blackberry, cherry, and plum with spicy pepper notes.
