Primitivo di Manduria Primitivo 2016

My first glass of wine in over 2 weeks. I’ve had pneumonia and an ear infection along with 4 rounds of antibiotics. I’m finally starting to feel like eating and having wine. I picked this one because I really liked it last time I had it. From what I can taste it’s very tannic and acidic but that could just be me. No matter what I’m still going to savor and enjoy it!

Papale Linea Oro Primitivo di Manduria 2013

16/20 (89/100) Аромат старого черничного варенья и шоколада с заметным животным тоном. Полусухое с невысокой кислотностью и интенсивными, вяжущими и несколько суховатыми танинами. Насыщенно ягодное во вкусе, но спиртуозность всё же недостаточно сбалансирована. — 11 days ago


Nel Rispetto Della Natura Primitivo

Super smooth and not jammy for such an inexpensive, natural wine. I feel like zin’s can get really fruity on the low end of the market, but this was perfect! — 14 days ago

Sé Primitivo di Manduria 2017

Younger version of the Es. Beautiful wine, very fruitdriven, still needs time to soften the sharper edges. However, a QPR which is not completely in balance... — 15 days ago

Sessantanni Old Vines Primitivo di Manduria 2014

16.5/20 (91/100) Джемовый аромат черники и ежевики с нотами какао и сладких специй. Тельное с умеренной кислотностью и интенсивными, но мягкими по текстуре танинами. Спиртуозность неплохо замаскирована плотностью и остаточным сахаром, потому не раздражает. Напоминает легкую версию портвейна руби. — 11 days ago

Imperio LXXIV Primitivo di Manduria 2016

Oaky, earthy, with hints of lemongrass on the nose. This is a very interesting primitivo. I’m giving it a little bit of time to open up but it hasn’t changed much. It tastes of blackberry & earth, which as you can imagine, is what makes it an interesting wine. — 19 days ago

'Es' Primitivo di Manduria 2016

Again, stunning! Drink it young, give it some time in the cellar. Doesn't matter. This wine is phenomenal, always... But you need to love the style — 15 days ago

Primitivo di Manduria 2010

Spotted this at a wine store sitting right next to the 2016 vintage for the same price. Bought it without hesitation not knowing much about the producer. Am I glad I did!
Earthy, smoky, spicy, with hint of raisin and vanilla. Fruit has faded a bit but acidity is still very vibrant. Powerful entry but finishes off with gentle smooth tannins. Nice.
The bottle is very heavy - probably the heaviest 750ml bottle I’ve ever had.
