A Mano Primitivo Puglia IGT 2006
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 pleasant and fruity red, with nice red berry and mineral character. Medium-bodied, with lots of flavor and a fresh, fruity aftertaste. Drink now.
A clean and fresh Primitivo, wiht pretty berry and cherry character, medium body and a clean, round-textured finish.
A tasty Primitivo and a great value. With flavors of berries and pepper and deep aromas of earth, it's easy to see this wine's ancestral connection to Zinfandel.
A great value, this 100% Primitivo aged five months in a combination of French, American, and Slovenian wood, possesses a deep ruby/purple color in addition to sweet aromas of berry fruit, pepper, wood, and scorched earth. Medium-bodied, with loads of fruit and a progressive, modern style, this delicious Italian red will provide enjoyment over the next 1-2 years.
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.
