Primus, the icon wine of Bodegas Salentein, made with grapes from vineyards that express the best adaptation to the terroir and that come from selected plots of our farms of different heights. It is a limited edition that is made only in vintages where wines of exceptionally superior quality are obtained.
This wine has a deep and intense violet red color. On the nose it is complex, with notes of plums, blackberries and blueberries that are combined with subtle balsamic and floral notes. On the palate it is elegant with a very good structure, sweet tannins, excellent acidity and a long and pleasant finish.
