Wine Making:
In the orginal Greek-based Salentine dialect, Jéma meant blood. Blood which runs in the veins, in the heart and in the soul. Blood which drips into the baked cracks of the earth, drop by drop, mixing there with the primeval passions. Reason gives way to instinct, liberating desire in its primitive state. Primitivo blood, pure, intense, passionate, Jéma. Vinification: Maceration on the skins Fermentation: In steel tanks for approximately 20 days
