Winemaker Notes

Named for the Son of Zeus in honor of the growing area's ancient Greek origins, this wine is made from 100% Primitivo, the indigenous and most well-known grape in Puglia. Though appreciated for its high alcohol in the past, wines made from Primitivo are now more elegant, as is the case with Heracles. As is now more often the case with Primitivo, the wine is pleasantly fruity with hints of cherry and raspberry. Depending on the soil type, Primitivo can also contain spicy notes, and Heracles demonstrates notes of baking spice, licorice, and even hints of chocolate. Aging for 10 months in oak softens the excessive tannins which sometimes emerge in a young wine.

Critical Acclaim

James Suckling
Shows some nicely lifted raspberry-cheesecake and citrus notes, in addition to red cherry essence and baking spices. Full body, some nicely grainy tannins and a tight finish.

Masseria Surani, Italy
Masseria Surani is a new project in Puglia started by Tommasi, one of the historical and leading producers of Amarone, and one of the most important quality producers in the Veneto.

In 2012 the Tommasi family expanded its holdings in the south of Italy, purchasing 198 acres in the region of Puglia. The new property, known as Masseria Surani, is situated in the Salento Peninsula, the southeasternmost part of Italy. The term ‘Masseria’ refers to a traditional farm house in the countryside of Puglia. These houses were typically built out of sandstone and surrounded by high walls in order to protect its residents from attacks by Turkish pirates in the 16th century. Once a complex of agricultural buildings, Masseria Surani has been newly refurbished with vinification and maturation facilities. It is located in Manduria, one of the finest zones for the cultivation of the Primitivo grape, and is surrounded by 136 acres of organically farmed vineyards planted using the high-density, low-yielding Guyot training system. Manduria was first colonized in 700 BC by the ancient Greeks, providing the inspiration for Tommasi’s new range – all the wines are named after Greek gods.
