Primatio is a rare wine produced entirely with Nebbiolo, in Oltrepò Pavese, Lombardy. Oltrepò Pavese is also known as "Old Piedmont", after several decades of absence. The vine is well suited to our white soils, which have characteristics similar to those of the Langhe, although the climate is slightly drier and warmer. The vines of Nebbiolo are the first to sprout and develop and the last to be harvested. The long vegetative season allows the grapes to ripen slowly and to accumulate substances that give body and structure to the wine and a beautiful ruby red color.

From the vintage 2016 Primatio benefits from aging in oak barrels.
