Gold Medal – Berliner Wein Trophy, Germany
99/100 Luca Maroni

This Masso Antico is the equal highest rated wine in Luca Maroni's Best Italian Wines Annual. For those new to Luca Maroni, he's one of Italy's most renowned wine critics and this is one of his highest ever rated wines. We should also point out it was awarded Gold at the Berliner Wein Trophy (Germany's largest wine show).

This primitivo is produced in Puglia, the heel of the Italian boot and it delivers a rich, dense & powerful wine. This comes loaded with that slurpable juicy fruit everyone enjoys, it's like a little bit of Italian sunshine in a glass.

Winery notes (2021 Vintage)
"You might know Primitivo by its international name ‘Zinfandel’. But unlike its larger than life and overripe American counterparts, our red Masso Antico Primitivo has a touch of black pepper and spice which is typical of Italian reds produced in the southern region of Puglia.

Masso Antico grapes are cultivated just like in ancient Roman times in the Mediterranean area: using what is called the “Alberello” method. This combined with local sea breezes, intense Mediterranean heat and some oak barrel ageing results in a full-bodied wine, with a deep ruby red colour, mature fruit aromas and spicy notes, soft tannins a touch of vanilla on the finish. You will definitely want a second glass of this little gem, rated 99 points from wine expert Luca Maroni, with your favourite pizza or tomato based pasta dish."

99/100 Luca Maroni, Annual Italian Wine Guide 2021 (2021 Vintage)
''A harmonious, maximum qualitative expression. A treasure of consistency and clarity to the senses, reveals itself with absolutely universal enjoyability Its majestic extract, its stainless fruit and aroma is so clear and soft. A wine of native viticultural qualities. With its spicy blackberry, roundness and clarity, absolutely pure. Chapeau.''
