Primo, the Frascati Superiore DOCG by Merumalia, has intense and captivating aromas with a refreshing and persistent acidity. The taste is full-bodied and elegant, with minerality explosion. The autochthonous grapes are grown in espalier structure (guyot and spurred cordon) on the north side of volcanic, rocky soil (mineral rich) of Castelli Romani, respecting the nature and the environment. The PRIMO grapes production has an upper limit of 8 tons per hectar (much less than permitted). Grapes are pressed very softly in inert environment. To limit the generation of sulphites, the fermentation initiated with selected yeast, is thermally controlled in inox containers. The wine is ageing in inox and in bottle.
