This is a great Primitivo di Manduria for all lovers of the wine with a complex nose, with hints of black fruit, full, smooth, velvety, elegant, lively, perfectly balanced and with a long lasting aftertaste. Costing a little more than a normal Primitivo, this Primitivo di Manduria delivers a totally different drinking experience.
Primitivo di Manduria is the only Primitivo DOC wine despite the grape being grown all over Apulia and beyond - all other wines are bottled as IGT or IGP according to the new European legislation, Manduria is a town and area facing the Ionian sea and only the Primitivo grapes grown within its boundary can be used to make the Primitivo di Manduria.
This Primitivo di Manduria is a versatile wine but pairs beautifully rich and flavoursome dishes or enjoyed over some dark chocolate
The 2006 is the year Tenuta Giustini was born, even though the current generation's grandparents had been farmers and cultivated grapes all their life and their parents before them, they wanted to put in a bottle their grandparents’ hard work, until then, the grapes were sold to local cooperatives, they wanted to show them that their hard work and care in the vineyards, could produce great wines.
Salvatore, the latest generation, started with very little financial resources, but bags of passion and dedication, and bottle by bottle, in 2015 he finally built the winery, a winery equipped with all the latest equipment, the missing link to his dream.
Tenuta Giustini has vineyards in some of the most vocated area in the Apulia region, including Manduria, where they grow Primitivo that becomes Primitivo di Manduria, the only DOC Primitivo wine.
