TASTING NOTES

The history of the Tenute Chiaromonte officially began in 1998, when Nicola Chiaromonte took the reins of the family business with the intention of bringing prestige and value to the products of his region, Puglia, by producing finely honed, high-quality olive oil and wine. The 32 hectares of vineyards and olive groves of the Tenute Chiaromonte are situated in the Acquaviva delle Fonti area in the Province of Bari, where the chalky soils, rich in minerals and red clay, along with the head-trained vines, allow the Primitivo, the leading grape variety of Puglian winemaking, to fully express its traits. Elè is a Puglian red wine made from Primitivo grapes (85%) with a lesser percentage of the Aglianico variety (15%). It is characterised by its good structure and great drinkability. Following harvesting and fermentation, the wine is aged for 12 months in stainless steel tanks followed by two months in the bottle, without any filtration. This gives it an intense, deep ruby colour and a nose that is immediately reminiscent of cherries preserved in spirit, followed by hints of dried flowers and pleasant traces of Mediterranean herbs. The palate is dominated by fruity notes against a context of a strong structure and pleasing dynamism with an obvious yet balanced taste of tannin and a fresh, spicy finish. The balanced character and great drinkability of this Primitivo make it perfect as an everyday wine. It is extremely versatile and can be paired with cured meats and cheeses for aperitifs as well as first courses and medium-bodied meat dishes. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Chiaromonte

The history of the Chiaromonte winery is closely linked to that of Terre d'Acquaviva, upholding a never-ending passion for the land and the ancient art of wine-growing. The company's aim is to continue producing high quality Apulian wines based on commitment, study and innovation. A unique and harmonious fusion of tradition and modernity makes the Primitivo produced here a highlight in Italian wine production. The care and commitment put into the work result in a limited, almost exclusive production. There are various reasons for this: the most important, without doubt, is to always maintain high quality standards, to produce a skilfully crafted wine that guarantees an excellent taste. In recent years, the Primitivo has also been joined by the monovarietal vinification of another native grape variety of ancient origins, Fiano Minutolo. An innovative and surprising production that will leave everyone speechless. Name and address of producer/distributor: Chiaromonte - Contrada Scappagrano 70021 Acquaviva delle Fonti BA. Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
