Belle couleur cerise. Les arômes de baies, de fruits des bois typiques du Primitivo sont perceptibles, j'ai peu bu mais j'ai aimé.
Le vin était très bon mais nous n'avons pas bien choisi la nourriture.
Avec des amis.

Bilanciato, strutturato, aromatico e mix di sapori al palato. Un primitivo maestoso!

Uno dei migliori primitivi che io abbia avuto l occasione di provare, una esperienza unica, dove puoi sentire ogni piccolo raggio di sole della Puglia riflettersi in questo vino, fantastico abbinamento con molti piatti, devo dire che il giunonico di Paolo Leo dovrebbero berlo tutti una volta nella vita!

Wine for special occasions ... I tried it thanks to an Italian friend and I will thank him forever, not only for the wine which is fantastic but for making me try an exceptional grape

You will like to know that ...

Primitivo di Manduria, located in the Southern region of Puglia, is one of Italy’s most iconic regions. This remarkable area is commonly known for its ancient stone huts, charming country-side and distinctive red wines.

It is a designated viticultural area in Puglia.

This is essentially a sub-region that is famously known for growing Primitivo, which plays a major role in defining southern Italy’s style.

Primitivo, the grape variety, is also commonly known as Zinfandel - which is better recognized in California’s Winelands. This variety produces dark-red wines with succulent fruit flavours and grippy tannins.

These high tannins that are a defining trait of Primitivo often enforce the need for the wine to be matured in oak barrels and bottles before being released. Most producers aim to age their wines for 4 to 5 years before release and encourage further ageing for up to fifteen years to truly receive these varieties best traits.

Tasting Notes De Siena Giuseppe

This Primitivo di Manduria, bright and intense ruby red color, leaves an enveloping, intense aroma, with aromas of blackberry and black cherry characteristic of its long aging in wood.

Its round and full taste is evident on the palate, with velvety and elegant tannins followed by a long aftertaste of overripe black fruit and spices.
