Sonetto Primitivo di Manduria DOC Riserva 2015 comes from the famous Puglia region in South Italy.
It is deep ruby red in colour. It has a very ripe and intense nose; ripe blackberry and plum, fig, cracked pepper and orange rind. A hint of smoke combined with spicy notes of tobacco, leather and seducting balsamic notes on the finish.
Its taste is clean and full-bodied, plenty of ripe dark fruit flavor and grippy tannins. Well-balanced, with purity, complexity and persistence on the palate.
Suggested pairings: perfect with game, roasted and grilled meats, casseroles and well-matured cheeses.
Serving temperature: 16 - 18 °C.
