Mani del Sud Primitivo di Manduria

Primitivo di Manduria. This very dark wine has a nose which I would call massive. Tremendous tar notes blend with the blackest fruit imaginable, pulling along aromas of black olives, leather, forest floor and smoke. The palate is just as savory, with black plum and berry flavors joined by black pepper, black cherry cola and a hint of cardamom. The tannins are fairly smooth. Pair this wine with any kind of meat or game dish. — 25 days ago

Senatore Primitivo 2017

The wine is quite dark in the glass but is also very closed off on the nose. There is some black plum and some tar, but it is surprisingly faint. The palate isn't shy about showing its dark fruit with a layer of savory spice and anise over it. The tannins are not forceful, so pairing with pasta is a cinch, or just sip it. It is very tasty and smooth, and has a lengthy finish. — 10 days ago

Sinfarosa Primitivo Zinfandel Di Manduria 2017

This wine is medium-dark in the glass, and full-blown dark on the nose. Aromas of black fruit leap out first, but the tar notes follow quickly. It has a peppery smell to it and a healthy amount of chocolate and cigar box. The palate is full and lush. Blackberry notes, anise, mocha and bramble all join together with firm tannins and a lengthy finish. I want a steak with this one, but a sausage and pasta dish would be nice, too. You can also enjoy it by itself as it is quite sip-worthy. — 10 days ago

Pillastro Puglia Primitivo 2020

It felt a little sour at the beginning when opened. However, after opening and leaving it in an air for a bit, taste settled and became a lot less sour. Goes well with a grilled meat and veggies. — a day ago

Agricola Erario

l'Unico Riserva Primitivo di Manduria 2015

This medium-dark wine offers a nose of dark fruit and a bit of tar. There is a touch of clove and a hint of mint, too. The palate is drenched in blackberry, cassis and plum, with a noticeable level of tannins. The finish is long and juicy, with that dark fruit flavor lasting the longest. Pair with steak or a Bolognese dish. — 24 days ago
