“ALCHIMIA” PRIMITIVO PUGLIA
The first bottling
Our Primitivo Puglia Alchimia was presented for the first time during the year 2013 with the excellent vintage 2012.
We tried to introduce this new wine inside Duca di Saragnano brand during Vinitaly 2013 when it was tasted and analyzed by importers and expert of the wine sector that were visiting our stand in Verona. We would like to understand if it could be a good product for our market so we used this bold method to propose it to the public collecting opinions and thinking regarding the taste but also the new package proposed. This is a unique and "magical" wine that is able to communicate our intentions to perfection, catching the real essence and aromas of grape variety itself. The idea that stay at the basis of the product is the concept of the strong feelings that could be between a woman and a man that are falling in love and, in this case, the sweet memory which people could have after the first tasting.
