Primitivo di Manduria DOC Riserva

Aged Red Wine

One of the most important native vines in Apulia and greatly appreciated for its strong, concentrated grapes, meaning its quality and longevity are more than comparable with the great reds of Piedmont, Veneto and Tuscany.

The expert’s opinion:

 “Absolutely in a class of its own; the best Italian red of the year. A majestic fruity consistency that is stupendously harmonious to the senses, and with an aroma that has no faults or deficiencies. A masterpiece of wine growing and making, that celebrates with its appealing hints of minty blackberry jam, the natural expertise and techniques of this winemaker. Congratulations!”
