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.
The primitivo vines average 15 to 25 years old and are trained in the native alberello (bush vine) system. Winemaking is carried out at a temperature of 25° C, macerating for a week, before aging for a minimum of 6 months in big Slavonian oak casks.
The general thirst for Primitivo, and other rich Italian reds, shows no sign of letting up. This Tre Bicchieri winning Primitivo di Manduria is sure to win the hearts of anyone looking for a rich, warming Italian red this autumn and winter.
Medium ruby red colour with a pure nose of ripe dark fruits, cherry, plum and sweet spices like ginger and aniseed supported with discreet oak. The palate is round and textured with a well balanced freshness, ending with a long and broad spicy finish.
