Tasting notes

The roots of the Tenuta del Pajaru estate are deeply embedded in the history and symbols of Puglia. A “Pajaru” is a rural drystone building used as a shelter by farmers and shepherds. The shepherd, known as the “Picuraru” in dialect, embodies that seasonal toil typical of the slow work required to produce a great wine.
It is from the experience, tenacity and perseverance that the shepherds have in tackling their work that we were inspired by the creation of the Primitivo “Picuraru”. A majestic intense red dark color with the bewitching aromas of ripe red fruit that turn into black chocolate, leather and pepper in the mouth. It goes well with aged cheeses, cold cuts and meat dishes.
