Maturo is a blend of 55% Primitivo and 45%Negroamaro. The soils are well known for being sunny and rich in red clay. The closeness to the Mediterranean Sea and its warm and windy climate are essential to the full ripeness of the Primitivo and Negroamaro grapes. The growing system adopted in this area is the “bush cultivation”, which produces a low yield, yet ensures an excellent maturation. The origins of the Primitivo vine are ancient, probably tracing back to the Greek Colonies, which already knew and appreciated it. Negroamaro is the typical and traditional varietal of the Salento area.
