2016 Primitivo di Manduria D.O.C old Vines
A wine with intense character and finesse. The "old vines" give this wine a multifaceted depth.
The Apulia wine region, from which this red wine comes, is located in the south-east of Italy, between the Adriatic and the Ionian seas. The fertile plains of Puglia and the warm, dry climate in summer allow the cultivation of wine. The region has a wine-growing area of over 100,000 hectares and produces around 7.5 million hectoliters of wine a year. The climatic conditions produce rich red wines from the Sangiovese, Primitivo and Negroamaro varieties. The term "Alberello" refers to the Goblet education system. In the goblet system, vines grow as individual trees without a support system (wires, frames, piles) in bush form. Other names: goblet, sapling, alberello, envaso, bushvines. This Primitivo is a red wine with a particularly intense character and finesse. 100% made from Primitivo di Manduria, this wine has a bouquet of wild forest berries, jam and hints of caramel. The taste is a wonderfully harmonious wine, intense on the palate and with a long finish. Especially fans of velvety wines will get their money's worth here. Suitable especially with game dishes, beef and cheese.
