Tasting Notes

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 25�C 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.
