Primitivo di Manduria

This is a Primitivo di Manduria with 6 years on it. I should mention that I cut my wine teeth on Zinfandel (when I was a dapper young man...1994 vintage), so I know the grape.

After my customary request to drop the temperature by 5-10 degrees (these guys in Italy too often pull a wine off a shelf and pop n pour, guess I'm wimpy)... Anyways, after cooling and opening, this was great.

Color leaning towards pink/orange, a meat note on the nose, nice spicy black pepper mid-palate.

As expected low acid, mid tannin, and nice finish. Solid. More Primitivo coming soon to a Delectable post near you!!!

A very solid primitivo - quite fresh on the nose, but much riper in the mouth. Rich and full bodied, with a jammy and spiced finish. — 4 days ago

Leggenda Vigne Vecchie Primitivo di Manduria 2015

I'm in Miami for a few days before Italy and loaded up for the next few days. Trying to acclimate to Puglia. This Primitivo isn't what I'm used to.

This deep purple juice slimes me with a soft, soapy, mess... In my opinion. The oak just screams at the onset, like chewing on several high end popsicle sticks. Alcohol, tannins are both low, and obviously...so is acidity. It wasnt cheap, so I'm giving a few tries. Floral nose that I link to the wood. Huge vanilla bomb. Listen... Somebody will love this wine. Not me
