Why I recommend Primitivo di Manduria DOC Triusco 2019 Rivera
This Primitivo wine comes from Primitivo di Manduria grapes and Primitivo di Gioia del Colle. Harvested in mid-August from sapling and espalier vineyards on land overlooking the Adriatic and that of Gioia del Colle at about 350 meters above sea level. The two wines stand in concrete tanks and then pass into barriques for aging. A jovial wine with a marked longevity and a beautiful bright color. It is a wine to be tasted to grasp the evolution of the fruit that feels full.
We drank it for you to accompany a particularly tasty dish, cardoncelle vegetable soup and lamb.
The Sommelier: In the glass immediately a lot of stuff in this Apulian wine based on Primitivo: Body and structure always crystalline, intense and deep amaranth color and purplish rim, colors the glass and shows the powerful consistency with slow and wide arches.
