    Primitivo di Manduria


    750ml Bottles

    Primitivo di Manduria is once again ranked as a top Italian red wine. This dark-skinned grape is used to make an intense, inky tannic red wine.  The flat clayey and calcareous terrain, and the hot dry climate, enable this grape to develop, ripen and mature, creating a mouth-feel that is full, smooth and silky. The grapes are hand-picked, destemmed and after crushing, go through a 7 day maceration at 25-26C the a period of malolactic fermentation.  Aged in stainless steel tanks until bottled.

    On the nose: Luxurious perfume of ripe cherries, blackberries and plum with pleasant notes of chocolate and vanilla, wild berries jam, violet and pepper

    On the palate: Remarkable structure, and soft thanks to the presence of sweet tannins, with a long, warm finish. High acidity and a full, rounded body.
