Produttori di Manduria
In the heel of Italy, Manduria is considered the birth place of the native Primitivo grape, and was officially recognised as such in the 1970s when a DOC was created for the region. However Produttori di Manduria had been making wines for 40 years by then, unashamedly proud of their deep affection for Primitivo.
A pure nose of ripe dark fruits, cherry, plum and sweet spices like ginger and aniseed with a little discreet vanilla from six months spent ageing in oak casks. The palate is round and textured with a well balanced freshness, ending with a long and broad spicy finish. A food-flexible wine, but pairs well with roast red meats, grills or pasta with ragu sauce.
