Historical notes

“The unripe wine of Manduria” 

“Primitivo” of Manduria is one of the oldest vine varietes in Italy and it has very controversial origins: according to someone it was introduced in Puglia by Greek colonists, for others by Illyrians or by Phoenician merchants or even by Benedictine friars. Other hypotheses place the origin of the vine varieties in Dalmatia, following the discovery of a genetic relationship between Primitivo and two Dalmatian vine varieties: Plavina and Plavac Mali. It has been proved that its presence in the territory of Apulia dates back to many centuries ago. The most famous proof is the one of Don Filippo Indellicati, who discovered it at the end of 8th Century in Gioia del Colle and extended it to the rest of Apulia. It developed mainly in Salento and then in the area of Taranto. About the origin of the name there is a certain harmony of thought: it derives from the early maturation of the grapes, which are often ready for harvest in the first two weeks of September.
