General information


Primitivo Selezione DOC Salento - Conti Zecca is a wine from Puglia,region of Italy ,Puglia, the heel of the Italian boot, is a prolific wine producing region that has often surpassed in volume Sicily and Veneto in the past. Puglia can be roughly separated into two viticultural sectors by an imaginary line from Brindisi to Tarente. At the North of this line, the ground is hilly and the climate is temperate, even in some fresh heights on the plateau of Murge. Dry wines of this area have a moderate strength with an impressive fruit, good acidity and ample bouquet. South of the Brindisi - Taranto line is the Salento, a pretty flat peninsula that extends between the Adriatic and Ionian seas, up to the most eastern point of Italy. Even if the weather is warm it’s not torrid thanks to ocean currents and winds that blow across the Adriatic from the Balkans. As traditional markets for heavy and strong wines have fallen sharply, local producers are putting more and more emphasis on top-quality wines. Some now offer good or excellent red wines, white and dry, well-balanced rosé and sweet wines all made from a variety of grapes, both local and foreign. The grape variety Primitivo di Manduria, one of the oldest of Salento, is the family of Zinfandel from California. Even if he was used to make wines blends, a new wave of producers showed that Primitivo might have an undeniable class in a style that bears comparison with its American counterparts.


Primitivo Selezione DOC Salento - Conti Zecca is located in Puglia's sub-region of Salento ,Salento IGT is one of the most commonly used IGT titles in Puglia, southern Italy. It covers the Salento, the limestone-based peninsula that divides the Adriatic Sea from the Ionian Sea and provides Italy with its 'heel'. In theory, Salento IGT wines may be red, white, rosé, still, sparkling (spumante), sweet (passito) or dry – essentially any style the local winemakers can dream of. In practice, however, the majority stick firmly to the long-established styles of the region: powerful, dry, rustic reds.The Salento consists, in administrative terms at least, of Puglia's three southernmost provinces, Taranto (also covered by the Tarantino IGT title), Brindisi and Lecce. Thus the viticultural area covered by the Salento IGT title stretches 100 miles (180km) north to south, from the white beaches of Leuca, past the port town of Taranto, past the Gravina di Laterza canyon and right up to the border with Basilicata.


  • Zinfandel / Primitivo(100%)  
    Also called Primitivo in Italia, Zinfandel is a dark-skinned red wine grape variety widely cultivated in California, especially in Napa and Sonoma Valley where it enjoys temperate climate. After 30 years of discussion and disagreements, DNA research carried out in California in the 1990s confirmed that Zinfandel is identical to Italy's Primitivo. But although this research closed the debate over whether Zinfandel is Primitivo, it opened up an even older chapter of the variety's history. We know that Primitivo arrived in Italy via Croatia. In the US, Zinfandel gives robust red wines as well as semi-sweet roses (called White Zinfandel) and late harvest dessert wines, depending of the winemaking method used. Each winemaking area of California has its own style of Zinfandel red wine: balanced and spicy in Sonoma County, intense and plummy in Nappa Valley, round and soft in San Luis Obispo County...


Conti Zecca winery in Puglia has a five century history made up of passion tradition and innovation that have brought it to become one of the most important wine producers of Puglia and Italy. The Family moved to Puglia and more precisely in Leverano district in the heart of Salento and in 1500 it began an intense agricultural activity on his own estates.


Today the heirs carry on the family tradition devoting themselves to the same philosophy: from the selection of the ideal environment and clones to the planting of vineyard from the choice of ideal agronomic techniques and ideal grape harvesting time to vinification and bottling for the production of high quality wines considered among the best wines of Puglia.
