Ghenos Primitivo di Manduria Rosso DOC

Wine Type: Red Wine

Country: Italy

Region: Puglia

Grapes: 100% Primitivo

Aging: 10 months in steel, followed by 6 months in barrique, then in bottle.

Tasting Notes: Deep ruby red wine enriched by orange glints with aging. On the nose it has an intense, full and fragrant bouquet. On the palate it is balanced and full-bodied.

Food Pairings: Classic red wine, perfect with roasted red meat. Excellent with hard cheese and ham.

James Suckling: “Quite a structured primitivo that shows promise. Medium-to full-bodied, with clean black-plum fruit and oak elements needs a bit of time to achieve full harmony. But already the tannins are melding with the fruit. Sustainable. Like it. Drinkable now, but worth waiting until at least 2023.”

International Wine Report: “The 2018 ‘Ghenos’ offers inviting aromas of ripe dark cherries and roasted plums woven together with hints of wild herbs and licorice. On the palate this is medium-bodied and seamless with a gorgeous velvety texture and glides effortlessly through the finish.”
