The Details

In a Nutshell

Full-on with dried fig, sultana and date fruit.

Tasting Notes

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, it is concentrated and opulent on the palate, with great balance. It is elegant, velvety and supple, with a long finish.

Production Notes

The Primitivo grapes were dried for five weeks then underwent a leisurely, cold (18°C) fermentation. About one third of the wine spent time in three year old French oak, to gain another layer of complexity without picking up any oak flavour.

Producer - A Mano

By producing wines of quality, Mark Shannon and his partner, Elvezia Sbalchiero, have succeeded in making Primitivo one of Italy’s most talked about grape varieties. By paying high prices for the best grapes (from 70 to 100 year old vines) and focussing solely on quality and a modern style, they have revolutionised the style and quality of Primitivo.
