Passo Del Cardinale Primitivo di Manduria

£13.75

Expect a wine that is ruby red colour with elegant garnet reflections. On the nose it gives an intense bouquet of black berried fruits, mainly blackcurrant that fades into notes of liquorice and coffee. The taste is decisive, with velvety and grippy tannins. The wine is fresh and well-structured, offering a persistent finish of forest fruit jam and sweet spices.

I’ve been looking for a slightly off-dry Primitivo for ages and when I came across this at a tasting I knew from the moment it touched my lips that I had found it.

Passo del Cardinale Primitivo di Manduria is produced in the rural countryside that surrounds the towns of Manduria and Sava, right on the heel of Italy. The Primitivo grape is known for ripening early, meaning that in some cases they can get a second harvest out of the vines. The second harvest produces grapes that are fresh and higher in acidity, which brings a balance to the wine.
