PRIMITIVO DI MATERA
2017 Akratos DOC Battifarano
Always a later release than you would normally find and as a result a finer and more complex wine. Sleek, with a distinct freshness and elegance, loganberry, mulberry and a dusty chocolate note. Tannins are fine and add structure, the acidity is there and perky, keeping everything in balance, gentle, persistent and satisfying. Drinking range: 2021 - 2024 L&S (Sep 2021)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
If Italy is a boot, you'll find this brilliant winery on the coast in the arch of the foot, in the southern part of Basilicata. The Battifarano farm has been owned and worked by the same family for more than five centuries.
The focus moved to wine in the 1930s and Francesco, who currently heads up the family business, is the second generation to be a trained agronomist.
This has lead to a great focus on identifying the perfect sites for each of the different varieties grown here. The aim is, to as transparently as possible, transfer their great terroir into the wine in every bottle.
Minimal interventions are made and the results speak for themselves. These are the very purest expressions of the local Basilicata varieties Primitivo and Greco, dishing up excellent value, top quality wines that are simply a pleasure to drink.
