Primitivo di Manduria, Magnifico Rosso, Fuoco

The vineyards for this Magnifico Primitivo di Manduria are very close to the little town of Manduria in Puglia. They are south-facing and enjoy a very hot, mediterranean climate. The primitivo grapes are grown on bush vines, ripen early and are handpicked in early September. Fermentation is carefully controlled using a submerged cap system in order to extract delicate tannins and varietal fruit characteristics. Maceration lasts for 12-15 days at controlled temperatures not exceeding 25°C before the wine is aged on its lees for 3 months to add texture.

This wine is big and brash and alcoholic. Inky and full-bodied, with great tannic and acidic structure balanced by luscious, fresh dark fruits, this is a gorgeous wine which is incredibly moreish and boasts a long, satisfying finish. Still young, this will develop nicely.
