ORO DI EMERA, THE PRIMITIVO PAR EXCELLENCE

Tenuta di Emera, a famous winery in the Apulia wine region, is located near Taranto on the Ionian coast. It is here, in the heart of the Primitivo di Manduria appellation, that Oro di Emera was born, having been awarded the 3 bicchieri by the Gambero Rosso guide for the 2020 vintage. Oro di Emera takes its name from the golden colour of its vineyard at sunset.

Made from the emblematic and internationally known Primitivo grape variety, Oro di Emera is a wine whose vines are over 60 years old and offer small yields per square metre with around 600 grams. The limestone soil, which provides the necessary freshness in a region flooded with sunshine, allows this wine to achieve the natural balance that is the hallmark of great wines. The meticulousness of this wine, with harvesting in small boxes to avoid crushing the grapes, and the selection of the best bunches, make this Primitivo a great wine among the great.

With each vintage, the same feeling comes over us when we open this wine: an exalted happiness where the scents of fresh blackberries, liquorice and tobacco leaves intermingle. A round Primitivo wine in the mouth where the coated tannins take on volume, supported by a fresh framework that gives relief to the whole. Oro di Emera is first and foremost a pleasure to taste, but also the ideal companion for food and wine pairings.
