Angiuli Primitivo IGP Apulia 2020
The history of Angiuli Donato's winery began in 1880, a family history that today has no end.
The winery, located in Adelfia, in the heart of the wine production area of Primitivo DOP Gioia del Colle, today is run by Donato Angiuli with the collaboration of his sons Vito and Giuseppe.
As viticulturists their philosophy, from 1880 until today, has remained unchanged: the territory must be respected; from here the desire to cultivate autochthonous vines which are well matched with the nature of the soil and microclimate.
Donato Angiuli for the niche wines of his winery has created the brand "Maccone", from the dialectal name of the first cellarman of Angiuli winery, a man of great personality, professionalism and fame in local agriculture.
The wines of this line come from grapes of old Alberello vineyards having an average age between 50 and 80 years old, which produce very few bunches per vine, thus intensifying and greatly increasing the quality of the finished product.
Passion and creativity have led to the production of Spumante Brut ancestral method (fermented in bottle without adding yeasts and sugars), unique in the international wine scene.
Since three generations, Angiuli family produces this wine from old clones of primitivo.
Thanks to manual harvesting, the best bunches are used and macerate for 15/18 days in stainless steel containers. Alcoholic fermentation occurs thanks to indigenous yeasts. All this contributes to exalting the typicality and fragrance of the fruit.
