Magnifico, Primitivo di Manduria Rosso Fuoco Riserva 2020
This Primitivo di Manduria is an intense purple colour which tends towards garnet with age. Inky and full-bodied, with great tannic, alcoholic and acidic structure balanced by luscious, fresh dark fruits, this is a gorgeous wine which is incredibly moreish and boasts a long, satisfying finish.
The vineyards for this Primitivo are very close to the little town of Manduria in Puglia. They are south-facing and enjoy a very hot, mediterranean climate. The primitivo grapes are grown on bush vines, ripen early and are handpicked in early September. Fermentation is carefully controlled using a submerged cap system in order to extract delicate tannins and varietal fruit characteristics. Maceration lasts for 12-15 days at controlled temperatures not exceeding 25C before the wine is aged for at least 24 months. Aging includes 12 months in Slavonion and American oak barrels, and 12 months in stainless steel.
Botter was founded in a small town just outside of Venice in 1928. Since then it has grown to become one of the largest producers and exporters of Italian wines. The winery prides itself on being a symbol for the passion - as well as talent and creativity - of the three generations of winemakers that have expressed the terroir around the Primitivo di Manduria “Magnifico Rosso Fuoco”.
