Torrevento Primitivo di Manduria "Ghenos" DOC 2017

Deep ruby red colour with garnet reflections. The spiced cherry, candied orange peel and dark berry fruit bouquet is complemented by undertones of tobacco and dried plums. Soft and rich palate with a delicate tannin texture. This supple and dense wine finishes with a return to spicy nuances of leather, coffee and cocoa.
Produced by one of the most famous wineries in Puglia, this classic Apulian red faithfully expresses the sunny Manduria terroir and retains the classic fruity notes of Primitivo grapes. A perfect example of synthesis between grape variety and production area. At the end of vinification in steel with maceration on skins, the wine was aged in stainless steel vats for 10 months and for another 6 months in barriques.
