Perché No?! Zinfandel (Primitivo) IGP from Puglia is a bright red wine made from 100% selected Primitivo grapes grown in the Salento area. These grapes are harvested when perfectly ripe in the first week of September, and then go through pressing and destemming, followed by maceration and fermentation at a controlled temperature of 22-26°C for 8-10 days.
This wine has 15% alcohol content, with 5.8g/lt of total acidity and 6.5g/lt of volatile acidity, as well as 34/35g/lt of residual sugars. On the palate, it showcases ripe red fruits with hints of dry fruit and spices. The wine is soft and balanced by a good acidity, while its silky tannins give it a long, enveloping finish.
