Deep and complex flavours of prunes, black cherry, spice and tobacco weave through the full-bodied palate with its velvety texture and long, savoury finish. Quite delicious.
Primitivo Anniversario 62 San Marzano
£25.95 – £52.95
The Primitivo di Manduria Riserva DOC Anniversario 62 San Marzano is, without doubt, a spectacular red wine. A densely flavoured wine with hints of prunes and chocolate covered black cherry combined with fresh herbs, it is simply quite delicious.
The grapes were hand-harvested once they had reached an advanced state of ripening. 80% of the must was macerated for a period of 18 days, with the remaining 20% being macerated for slightly longer- 25 days, gaining complexity and layering in the final wine. The thermo-controlled alcoholic fermentation took place at temperatures of 24 to 26°C. The wine was then matured for 18 months in fine French and American wood barrels.
Available in standard 75 cl and 150 cl Magnum bottle.
The perfect partner with red meat, game and savoury first courses.
