"MIREA, I've just drunk a wine named MIREA! And suddenly that name, will never be the same, MIREA! Say it loud and there's music playing, say it soft and it's almost like praying, MIREA!"

That’s enough isn't? Romeo and Juliet was hard work when it wasn't a musical set in New York. However, the reaction of unplanned song, upon taking a sip of this appassimento method Primitivo, is the correct one. The wonderful heady Primitivo grapes grown in Puglia are dried over winter, in exactly the same way Amarone is made, giving this wine extraordinary ripeness, power and concentration of flavours. The mouth feel is big and intense, yet round, rich, warm and extremely well-balanced. It displays complex and mouth-filling layers of soft, elegant tannins, with hints of black forest fruit, vanilla, prunes, raisins, coffee and honey.
“MIREA… I’ll never stop saying… MIREA!”
Masseria Borgo dei Trulli began planting vines in 1960. The estate is located in the central part of the historical Salento region, in Puglia, close to the Salice Salentino DOC area. The production is mainly (80% of vineyard area) focussed on the traditional and indigenous red grape varieties Negroamaro and Primitivo. Alessandro Michelon is the winemaker. He is a native of Trentino, after studying and working in various locations he eventually founded Orion Wines. His company acquired Masseria Borgo dei Trulli in 2006. Alessandro's philosophy is to combine tradition and modern techniques in order to produce high-quality wines at a fair price.
