Primitivo di Manduria

Very complex and full-bodied wine, with an intense nose of sweet jammy red fruits and blackberry that gives it a very strong character. Black pepper and chocolate spicy aroma. Well-balanced and soft tannic taste that tends to sweetness. The varietal grapes stand out and persist.
