Rivera is the only one with Castel del Monte with DOC & DOCG status in Central-North Apulia (Puglia) and is the pioneer of Apulian (Puglia) wines. Today Rivera is still owned by the De Corato family. It is run by Carlo de Corato and his sons Sebastiano and Marco, with great enthusiasm and a dynamic management approach.
With this Rivera Primitivo winery Rivera shows the balanced mix of the characteristics of the primitivo grape. Primitivo is today one of the most renowned Italian grape varieties with its intense, fruity and soft character. Due to the unique (and cool) location of the Rivera vineyards, it is possible to make a very accessible and fresh wine that enhances the intense aromas of the black fruit of this variety. The Primitivo vineyard is located on the Salento peninsula in the southern part of the Apulia region. The vineyards are located on calcareous clay soils at an altitude of 50-80 meters and this is what makes the Salento Primitivo so popular. The wine was aged for 9 months in glass-lined concrete to keep the fruit and varietal character intact.
