Primitivo is practically synonymous with Puglia and the south of Italy. If you truly want to experience the quality of a fine Primitivo di Manduria, try this wine.
It must be said that the Primitivo di Manduria is slightly different from the rest of Puglia. Manduria has a privileged location, right in the middle of the Salento peninsula.This allows the marine breeze coming from both the Adriatic Sea and the Ionian Sea to refresh the vineyard. The soil is composed of limestone with iron oxide fossils, giving it a distinctive red color. This soil is also known as Terra Rossa and it is typical of the Mediterranean region.The climate is ideal too, with mild winters and extremely hot summers and according to Decanter, “Primitivo is the most sun-loving grape I have seen.”
It goes well with dark and white meat from the grill or from the oven. Also a pleasant red wine with pasta dishes with spicy sauces as well as spicy cheeses. Its elegance and structure make it a perfect wine for romantic evenings or important dinners
