The winery
Mottura’s historical winery is in Tuglie and is a typical example of late 19th century industrial architecture within a splendid estate, with Baroque carved stone balconies and vaulted cellars, home to the family’s wine-making secrets for almost 100 years.
All of the modern equipment coexists with the charm of the building’s marvellous old star vaults. Fining in steel, ageing in oak barrels, the bottling phases and storage of the wines take place in restored and functional areas
The winery is also the perfect location to taste Mottura wines: a highly sought-after and valued experience that will make your visit to Salento even more memorable.
Salento is the southernmost part of the Puglia region, a longstanding place of arrival and transit for peoples and cultures, from the Greeks to the Romans, the Byzantines and the Arabs. It is a strip of land between two Mediterranean seas, the Ionian and the Adriatic, and it is the first point where the sun rises in Italy.
Its weather, landscape and art, its strong ties with traditions, make Salento an alluring place that leaves its mark on the memory and heart of its visitors.
The age-old culture of this area is highly valued also by events that every year celebrate the history and traditions of its people who, until little over 50 years ago, lived mainly off agriculture.
The spirit of the tarànta lingers throughout the entire area of Salento and its musical and cultural heritage resonates highly with the new generations. Every summer, for the whole month of August, there is a series of musical events devoted to the “pizzica”, the music and the dance of the “spider”.
One of these is the “Notte della Taranta”, the biggest folk music concert in Europe, which takes place in Melpignano at the end of August. As a tribute to this tradition, Mottura Winery has dedicated the label of one of its finest wines, the Primitivo di Manduria DOC “Stilio” to the Taranta dance.
The beauty of Salento does not, however, fade after the summer: all year round you can enjoy genuine, tasty gourmet food and the outstanding quality of the wines made from the grapes grown exclusively in this area, such as Negroamaro and Primitivo.

Description

Primitivo

It takes its name from the early ripening of the grapes which occurs between late August and early September. The plantations, mainly bush-trained, but also vertically-trellised, extend across the areas of Taranto, Salento and in Gioia del Colle, in the area of Bari. The origins of this grape variety are uncertain: it is supposed it may have come from Dalmatia and from Illyria, and to Salento 4,000 years ago with the Phoenicians who emigrated from the lands that now correspond to Syria and Lebanon. Recent research has revealed a genetic link between Primitivo, Zinfan from California and the Croatian Crljenac. It would in fact seem that all three followed the same routes in the eastern Mediterranean. Primitivo is grown in soils characterised by chalky tuff rock, in a layer of clay and in red soils with iron compounds. Primitivo is a red wine and generally has a deep ruby red colour with hints of purple that turn garnet with ageing. It is warm, full-bodied and mouth-filling with delicate tannins and good persistence.
“The bouquet of Primitivo is red fruits with notes of black cherry, blackberry and plum, with a greater sensation of brandied fruits as the alcohol volume increases. With ageing, the notes tend towards dried figs with almonds, and prunes.”
