Food Pairings for A Mano Primitivo Puglia IGT
Sipping this next to a Ridge Zin and a bottle of the prisoner really shows the similarities of the grape with the difference of the terroir. Sour berries on the nose with blue and black fruits on the palate with minerals and a bitter yet fresh finish.
A really nice drinkable primitivo. Not very alcoholic, subtle nose, delicate fruit flavours, reasonably full bodied, very good price. Not quite as spicy as a good Zinfandel.
External Reviews for A Mano Primitivo Puglia IGT
Wine Tasting NotesA-Mano is a stunning example of a concentrated, elegant, rich, deep, dark purple wine. The raspberries jump out of the glass to herald the aromas to follow, blueberry, tar, leather, anise and cedar. The complexity evolves and the soft, velvety tannins linger on the long, long finish. This is a wine that reveals a new treasure with each sip.
A gorgeous, handmade, gutsy, bistro-styled red made by a young American living in southern Italy, this deep ruby/purple colored 1998 Primativo's smoky, berry-scented nose jumps from the glass. There is substantial fruit, medium body, and fine purity and spice. It is an excellent value.
A juicy, fruity, drink-me Italian red at a grab-me price, delivering lots of chocolate and cherry character in a medium-bodied frame, with soft tannins and a long, fruity finish.
ldquo;A-manordquo; means hand-made. Entirely hand-crafted from old vines of the indigenous Primitivo variety (Zinfandelrsquo;s granddaddy), this fruit-packed, food-friendly red expresses the regionrsquo;s quality potential.
Dark and charry, here's a smoky and concentrated red for a turkey drumstick or pork ribs.
The 2006 Primitivo is a beautiful, expansive wine loaded with super-ripe jammy fruit and sweet toasted oak flavors. This generous, racy red offers superb length and is a ridiculous value for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2007ndash;2009.
Mark Shannon of California has made his name on the back of this perennial Southern Italian value, a dead-ringer for friendly Golden State Zinfandel - as it should be, considering that Primitivo and Zinfandel are genetically identical. This vintage is sweet, chewy and packed with chocolate and cinnamon flavors. You get the essence of natural sugar on the palate, yet ample acids and tannin keep it lively. A perfect wine for the winter.
