This lively example from the Salento region is a perfect match for the highly flavoured dishes of Italian cuisine.
An intense aroma of plum, cherry and spice, with hints of rosemary and vanilla. A full-bodied wine, soft and balanced, full of ripe fruit flavours through to a savoury finish. Best served with savoury first courses, red meat and game, mature cheese.
The nose is complex with aromas of ripe cherries, raspberries, redcurrants, plum spices and chocolate. On the palate, there are flavours of dried fruit, a slight raisin character, plums, damsons, garrigue and a hint of spice.
Deeply coloured and exuberant on the nose, with perfumes of ripe, red fruit, especially raspberries and a spicy, smoky edge from the oak ageing. On the palate it is youthful and full-bodied, with great balance between ripe, rounded fruit characters...
60% Primitivo di Manduria, 40% Primitivo di Gioia del Colle Intense purple in colour; rich bouquet with aromas of blackcurrant and blackberry, full-bodied with flavours of dried plum, chocolate, and blackcurrant.
