Description

Vespa Raccontami Primitivo Di Manduria 2015









Vespa Raccontami Primitivo Di Manduria has an intense violet colour with notes of mature fruits, prune, cacao and spices. The beautiful aromas is enriched with traces of vanilla and licorice. The mouth-feel is full and fresh with a soft, velvety palate, characterized by a particularly mellow tannic texture and a finish of excellent persistence.

This Primitivo di Manduria tells the story of the family’s journey through the fascinating world of wine.
The visual richness announces a strong character and, at the same time, a velvety impact. The scent of spices and berries anticipates its great, soft drinkability. Although ideal alongside elaborate meat dishes, Raccontami can actually pair with a substantial part of Italian cuisine.
100% Primitivo from Manduria where vineyards are elevated at about 90m and grown in clay soil. The average age of vines are about 40 years and the harvest during the late September. Maceration with skin took place for 15 days with several fullings. Malolactic fermentation is completed in barrique and aged for 12 months in Never and Troncais Barrique.

Showing a bit of age on the nose, this wine offers a condensed aroma of blackberry paste, anise and game. Medium-grained tannins and tangy acidity frame a dried berry flavor, with a gamy spice note pervading through the finish.
