A Mano, Imprint, Appassito, Primitivo, 2015, Puglia , Italy

A deeply coloured wine with exuberant perfumes of ripe red and black berry fruits, with notes of spice from the oak ageing. Made in the style of an Amarone, with grapes that have been dried for five weeks, it is concentrated and opulent on the palate, with great balance. Elegant, velvety and supple, with a long finish.

By producing wines of quality, Mark Shannon and Elvezia Sbalchiero have succeeded in making Primitivo one of Italy's most talked about grape varieties. They pay high prices for the best grapes from 70-100 year old vines and focus solely on quality and a modern style. After over fifteen vintages, they are now getting access to some of Salento's best grapes.

This was one of only five Southern Italian red wines to pick up a Gold at the 2017 Sommelier Wine Awards.  These awards differ slightly from some of the other big wine awards in that the judges consider value for money and food-friendliness, alongside the more standard awards criteria. 

Grape Variety: 100% Primitivo

ABV: 14.5%
