Rivera


After receiving such good feedback and demand for Rivera's 2015 Primitivo Salento  we decided to explore what else Rivera had to offer and this is another stunning example of a Primitivo and ware not disappointed. This is slightly more complex, but still makes the statement your drinking a brilliant example of a Primitivo. 

Producers Notes:

With "Triusco", Rivera aims at a delicately-balanced blend of the characteristics of the Primitivo variety grown in two representatives but different terroirs. 60% of the blend comes in fact from Manduria, where the variety shows the fullest body and character, and 40% is sourced from Gioia del Colle DOC area, where the cooler climate and the rocky soils lend wines of greater elegance and balance
