Primitivo di Manduria DOC 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Die Charakterzüge dieses südländischen Europäers präsentieren sich bereits in der Nase: Intensität, Konzentration, Gehalt und Nuancenreichtum. Das Bouquet ist von reifer Fruchtaromatik, süsslich-exotischen Gewürznoten und einer Prise von Pfeffer und Röstaromen geprägt. Die grosse Stärke dieses Primitivo di Manduria liegt in der Offenbarung von saftiger Gerbstofftextur und fruchtiger Struktur, begleitet von einem Süsseeindruck, der kennzeichnend für reifes Traubengut ist. Es ist ein klassischer Italiener, der sowohl verführerisch-leckere wie typisch-fruchtige Seiten aufweist.

Ognissole 2005 - Sante/ Spicy, hot red tutti-frutti flavors with hints of menthol. A young wine that shows it's age. Grilled teriyaki steak.

The 125-acre Ognissole estate, near the town of Fragagnano in Apulia’s Manduria region, was established in 2000 by the founders of Feudi di San Gregorio. Over the past 20 years or more, Feudi di San Gregorio, in southern Italy’s Campania region, has played a leading role in fostering a winemaking revolution that extends across southern Italy, and has led to a remarkable resurgence of regional wine industries. The Ognissole range taps into the enormous potential of local, ancient varieties in an effort to bring prestige and recognition to these treasures of the south. Ognissole seeks to revitalize this ancient area, bringing Apulia to the forefront among world-class wine regions. Production Area Apulia (Puglia), Italy. The grapes are grown in our estate in the area of Fragagnano, close to Manduria, where the soil is chalky mixed with medium consistency tufaceous layers. Grape Varieties 100% Primitivo. Vinification The grapes are vinified in thermo-conditioned stainless steel tanks. The maceration, carried out at a temperature not higher than 26 °C, lasts 8-10 days. The malolactic fermentation is completed by the beginning of winter. Afterwards, there is a further fining period in steel tanks (about 3 months) and in bottle (about 2 months). Color Deep ruby red with violet reflections. Bouquet The nose reveals a rich perfume of fruity hints as plum and sour black cherries and also spices as ginger and vanilla. Taste In the mouth it is warm, full and velvety. Alcohol 13.5% Serving Suggestions Pasta with rich meat sauces, excellent with red meat and in particular lamb. An ideal pairing for moderately aged as well as intense ripe cheeses.

Primitivo di Manduria DOC - 2013 - 89 points, Wine Enthusiast/ An elegant expression of this grape, this smooth, full-bodied wine delivers layers of spicy plum, juicy blackberry, graphite, clove and licorice. Firm but velvety tannins provide ample texture and support.

/ Thick black fruit and berries are enhanced by oak-driven aromas of spice and vanilla. This is a modern and polished expression of Primitivo with great structure, smooth tannins and good length on the close. Ognissole is Feudi di San Gregorio's estate in Puglia.

Italy's Zinfandel Pretender/ In a tasting of Primitivo from Italy, these were our favorites: Ognissole 2006 - Grapey, with purple tastes. Some white pepper, good acidity and raspberry fruit. Surprisingly floral nose. Medium-bodied and light on its feet.

/ Feudi is clearly at the forefront of winemaking in Campania. (It is also a top travel destination with a gourmet restaurant and other facilities). The 2004 Ognissole Primitivo has a medium ruby color and a nose of spicy dark fruit, herbs, coconut and vanilla. On the palate, it offers lush and richly extracted plum and casssis fruit, big tannins and a good deal of oak on a long pleasant finish.
