Cantine Sampietrana, Carlone Primitivo di Manduria 2021
Get to know: Cantine Sampietrana, Carlone Primitivo di Manduria
Fantastic Primitivo from Puglia, lots of bright fruits and violet on the nose. The palate is intense and complex with lots of ripe, jammy red fruits, sweet spice, vanilla and balsamic. Full bodied with rich, well intergrated tannins.
Roast lamb rump would be the perfect food pairing.
"Primitivo is the Italian name for Zinfandel. This one is a treat if you like a big red wine. There’s lots going on here. Dark, brooding, savoury, plummy, fig and vanilla spice. Rich and full bodied. Great with roast red meat."
