Dark red, deep, with browny red coloured notes on aging.
Clean, warm, good perception of black berry and plum jam scents, followed by marked pepper and vanilla notes.
Excellent mouth entry and thereafter pleasantly pungent continuous warmth sensation, followed by an interesting acid-salted note of light tannins. Excellent is the remaining sensation in the mouth after swallowing.
Primitivo di Manduria combines very well with all grilled or stewed lamb meats, it is excellent with roast beef and also with seasoned aged hard cheese.
