Tumà – Primitivo
This wine is dedicated to Don Tommaso Schiavoni, a nobleman who first planted a barbatelle (grafted vine cutting) of Primitivo di Manduria, in the land known as the Conca D’Oro of Masseria Cuturi. Primitivo and the varietal Zinfandel are actually clones of a Croatian grape called Crljenak. The words clone, clonal variety and cloning do not mean laboratory-based genetic mutations when applied to grape varietals. A grape clone is a genetic variation that can occur naturally and randomly. It can be encouraged by the grower by selecting which plants to propagate. In Italy it is common to find clones that have been separate from their origin-point for several thousand years and have become autochthonous – a unique varietal to the place where they grow.
