Rudiae is a Primitivo wine from Salento with a strong personality and a fruity aftertaste, produced by the Pugliese winery Vigneti Reale in Lecce. "Rudiae" is the name of the ancient Messapico center that gave birth to the Latin poet Quinto Ennio and where later the current city of Lecce was built.
After a manual harvest in August, Primitivo grapes are vinified in red, with a maceration on the skins for 10-12 days at 28-30 °C. The wine ages half in large wooden barrels and half in steel.


This Primitivo with an intense red colour with purple undertones. The aging in wooden barrels smooths the intense aromas of ripe berries, plum and cherry, adding notes of liquorice. Dry and generous taste. We suggest serving it at 18 °C, uncorking the bottle at least one hour before serving.


The good body of Vigneti Reale's Ruadiae Primitivo makes this red wine from Puglia perfect in combination with roast red meat, game and aged cheeses.

The vineyards are located in the heart of the Salento production area (southern Apulia), on 250 hectares (600 acres) of fertile land where there is an ancient tradition of wine-making and olive-growing. The landscape is flat, the rich and well drained soil is calcareous and tending to red. The climate is typically mediterranean, with long and dry summers, with a constant breeze which helps thermal excursion.

    Eccellente primitivo del salento, equilibrato tra frutto e corpo, non è di quelli moderni super alcolici. Taglio internazionale ma la tipicità rimane. Per me non è facile trovare nella giungla dei Primitivo uno così pulito ed elegante. Provatelo assolutamente!!!
