A Mano Primitivo

Handmade wines share the personality of the people who make the wine.
Primitivo is my favorite grape and it shows! The wine is friendly, easy to like and always a delight.
I’ve spent 20 years nurturing the modern Primitivo, a wine immensely respectful of its patrimony and the maximum of what the grape has to offer. Bottled Puglia, taste the sunshine.

Try it with penne all’arrabbiata, spaghetti carbonara, sausages, meat balls. Whatever you can grill, roast or stew we guarantee it will go well with A Mano Primitivo.

Grape:

100% Primitivo

Location of vineyards:

Manduria, Torricella, Sava, Lizzano, (The heart of Primitivo).

Age of vines:

30 to 60 years old.

What makes the site unique:

The vineyards have a crumbly, dark reddish brown soil  that resembles instant coffee.

Fermentation techniques:

The dark and brown soil retains heat and radiates it back onto the vine. Native yeasts were used for the fermentation which took place at very low temperatures – 64°F, in order to retain the raspberry aromas of classic Primitivo.

Why this wine is unique:

Deeply coloured and  exuberant on the nose, with perfumes of ripe, red fruit, especially raspberries and a spicy. On the palate it is  youthful and full-bodied, with a great balance between ripe, rounded fruit characters including blackberry and blueberry.

No wood ageing.
